Ha! I feel good to get this one. All I ever had to do in this city (I mean Toronto) was pick up a magazine, walk into Holt Renfrew or switch on Project Runway Canada – even though I don’t even watch the show, and there he was, Mr. Michael Kors saturated in this little tinsy city. I thought he was everywhere! I was convinced that he had a stake in the city. But it turns out I’m not alone in my thought, even to those south of the border. I guess he has a thing for over-saturation.

Turns out, Mr. Kors has opened up a has opened his second store in the same location in Chicago, located in 900 North Michigan Avenue shops. According to NBC Chicago, this is his second Chicago store in less than one year. And according to Biz Bash, the opening, which happened this past Wednesday, was compact with Ford and Elite Models strutting the runway, a dude by the name of DJ Rock City and “Raspberry Martinis.”

The event was limited to 400-guests who paraded around the 2,200 square foot boutique, and had a runway seating of 250, oh… how nice. The company that produced the event, chicago-based XA, the Experimental Agency, also made sure there were not 20, not 30 but 50-inch IMAG screens around the show so everyone could get a glimpse of the Kor’s runway collection.
