Malaysia had the immense honour of welcoming CFDA Lifetime Achievement Award winner and preeminent American designer Michael Kors onto its sunny shores recently, as he made a special appearance at Pavilion KL on the 2nd of November to launch the first Michael Kors duplex store.

He officially launched the store during the ribbon-cutting ceremony with representatives from his brand including company CEO John Idol and those from the Valiram Group, including company chairman Mr. Jethanand Valiram.

Miss Malaysia Universe 2011 Deborah Henry made a lovely emcee for the evening. Guests' appetites were well-satiated thanks to a range of delectable canapes, champagne and white wine as they mingled while awaiting the event's proceedings. Among those spotted mingling were local celebs like actress Maya Karin, supermodel Amber Chia, and Miss World Malaysia 2009 Thanuja Ananthan, who stood out at the launch in Michael Kors creations. Other famous faces who attended the event included soul songstress Ning Baizura, designer Bernard Chandran and wife Mary, and radio deejay Serena C.

This store is the first Michael Kors flagship location in Malaysia, and offers a full range of clothing and accessories from both the Michael Kors collection and MICHAEL Michael Kors labels, as well as a rich array of watches, jewelry, eyewear and fragrance.
