What’s Cool About Derek Lam

Derek_Lam_004_1366

San Francisco native Derek Lam is known for his classic, clean, feminine, and flirt designs. He grew up surrounded by fashion, as his grandparents ran a factory that specialized in wedding gowns. Derek actually worked as an assistant for Michael Kors before moving to Hong Kong and working as a designer there for four years.

Upon returning stateside, he went back to Michael Kors before eventually launching his own line. He stepped outside the box in 2010 by releasing a ready to wear line to be sold exclusively on eBay. He also launched a fun mini-collection for Kohl’s in 2013 that was inspired by Rio de Janeiro fashion. His philosophy has always been to have fun with fashion and to never take it too seriously, and that mind-set is pretty cool in our book.
