The day has arrived for the Michael Kors AW18 runway show and you can watch it live right here taking place at 5pm South African time Wednesday 14 February. The show is set to celebrate the energy and creativity of the iconic city that has long been the designer’s home and inspiration.

‘I wanted the show to be a love letter to New York. I’m inspired by everything about the city – the electricity, the speed, the diversity, the individuality, and of course the art and food and fashion,’ says Michael Kors. The show is taking place at Lincoln Center, in a building designed by renowned architect Eero Saarinen, with artwork specifically created by James McMullan, which is the New York that Kors wants to share with everyone.

New York overflows with inspiration, so we could perhaps expect to see a great selection of diverse models to take to the catwalk, all donning very wearable coats, leather, an abundance of textures and architectural, meets fluid silhouettes like the Michael Kors we know and love… There’s only one way to find out.
