Stepping out in New York was the theme of Michael Kors’ Fall/Winter 2022 runway show, which was presented at the iconic music venue Terminal 5 in Manhattan—marking the music venue’s first fashion show, and the designer’s first live evening show. From the runway, which was illuminated to echo city lights, to a musical performance by Miguel, the show celebrated the allure and energy of New York City at night.
Starting with his Spring/Summer 2020 presentation, Michael has used the occasion of his runway shows to shine a light on his hometown. From a New York Restoration Project community garden to the theater district to Tavern on the Green and now Terminal 5, the designer has worked to reignite the spirit that drives New York City.
“For this show, I wanted to bring the excitement and energy of a night on the town to life—because I think right now, no matter where you are, we’re all craving that,” says Michael Kors. “And the clothes are everything you need for stepping up, stepping out, and making an entrance.“
New York City Mayor Eric Adams was among the A-list front row, which also included Blake Lively, Brooke Shields, Ariana DeBose, Lady Eliza and Lady Amelia Spencer, Addison Rae, and more.
“Michael Kors is the epitome of made in New York,” says Mr. Adams. “He’s not only been a leader in the fashion industry for four decades but has been there for New York when the city has needed him most. As COVID devastated our city, Michael stepped up and got to work helping to rebuild so many industries hard hit by the pandemic. From shining a spotlight on charitable organizations to supporting our schools to paying homage to Broadway, Michael has helped us with recovery efforts every step of the way. New York City owes this icon a debt of gratitude and I am excited to see everything he does next, both on and off the runway.“
A musical performance by Grammy-award winning artist Miguel set the mood as models Natasha Poly, Emily Ratajkowski, Adut Akech, Precious Lee, Malgosia Bela, Paloma Elsesser, Alton Mason, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Isabeli Fontana, Irina Shayk, Sherry Shi, Karmen Pedaru, and more walked the runway against the illuminated backdrop. Chosen for his unique style and dynamic stage presence, Miguel performed anthemic songs including Raspberry Beret, as well as his hits Pineapple Skies and Sure Thing, providing the perfect soundtrack for the collection.
Playing with the art of revealing and concealing—of being both covered up and provocative—the runway included everything from short hemlines and thigh-high boots to dramatic hoods and skin-baring cutouts. Shades of camel, chocolate, and banker grounded pops of electric fuchsia, orange, and yellow while menswear tweeds, plaid, and flannel played against glamorous paillettes and crystal embroidery for a wardrobe that was made for stepping up and stepping out.
The virtual experience premiered on the brand’s social and digital channels, including MichaelKors-Collection.com, which serves as the hub for all Fall/Winter 2022 Michael Kors Collection content. The programming was also available to the brand’s international audience across YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, as well as on WeChat, Weibo, LINE, and Kakao.
