Michael Kors first began to develop an interest in fashion aged five when he suggested his mother alter her hideous wedding dress.
Michael Kors started giving fashion advice aged five.
The designer first realised he had an eye for style as a child when he helped his mother narrowly avoid a fashion disaster just before she was about to walk down the aisle.
In a talk with Yasmin Le Bon at the Vogue Festival at London's Southbank centre on Saturday (27.04.13), Michael revealed: ''I think it started when I was five and my mother was getting married again.
''I told her there were just too many bows on her dress. My grandmother disagreed but my mother thought I had a point and took them all off.
''The dress remained timeless - although she didn't stay married.''
Michael - who made TIME magazine's 100 most influential people list earlier this month - lived up to his reputation as one of the funniest men in fashion by cracking jokes throughout the event, and revealed his good humour is at its peak after a successful show.
He said: ''I'm not one of those designers who just pops his head around the wall after a show - I have never understood why people sometimes think that to be stylish you have to be sombre and serious.
''In fact I'm in full celebration mode afterwards - I feel like I've just given birth after a show. I'm joyful and ecstatic.''
