Overview

Fashion was always a part of Derek Lam’s family life: his grandparents ran a garment factory that specialized in wedding gowns. By the mid-80s, Lam began his own fashion journey and after graduating Parsons The New School for Design worked as an assistant for Michael Kors. Four years later, in 1994, he moved to Hong Kong and worked as a designer for G2000 – a mainstream retailer. After returning to New York in 1998, Lam was named vice president of design for Kors by Michael Kors. In 2003, Lam launched his first collection under his own name. His designs are recognised as part of the American sportswear fashion movement. Since 2006, Lam also worked as Tod's creative director.
