    Interview

    When I sent them my resume they responded within a matter of hours wanting to meet me right away, but when I came in for the interview they rejected me outright based on my appearance. And it was made very clear that was the reason I was unfit. The interview lasted maybe five minutes because they just had no interest in talking to me after they saw me even though I was actually extremely overqualified for the positions being discussed (I was an ASM previously). Was supposed to be a group interview but I guess I was pulled aside to be told I didn't qualify so don't bother. My attire seemed to be an issue as well (she kept stressing their dress code) although I was wearing a nice, simple, classy outfit that seemed to fit with the styles offered. I am always well-groomed and well-dressed and have worked in other nice stores where my looks and style were never brought into question, so I was pretty turned off by the whole experience.

    Fashion got Michael Kors out into the world. What he saw made him decide to give back.

    Fashion has been very good to Michael Kors. Over the last 35 years, the designer has made himself a nice little fortune by turning his daydreams about Aspen, Montauk, sporty socialites, minimalism and cashmere into a billion-dollar fashion empire.
