'Project Runway's' Michael Kors Gets Married
The fashion designer weds his longtime partner, Lance LePere, in a private ceremony in Southampton, N.Y.
Project Runway judge Michael Kors has tied the knot.
The fashion designer and his longtime partner, Lance LePere, were married Tuesday in a private ceremony on Dune Beach in Southampton, N.Y., on Tuesday, Women's Wear Daily reported.
Southampton Mayer Mark Epley officiated.
"To marry someone as wonderful and special to me as Lance barefoot on a glorious beach is more than I could have dreamed of,” Kors told WWD.
The duo reportedly met in 1990 when LePere began working as an intern at Kors' company. They picked up a marriage license earlier this month in New York.
"Lance and I are very excited to finally be able to have the opportunity to marry in our home state after many years together," the designer told Us Weekly at the time. New York legalized same sex marriage in June.
Kors' company last week sold a minority stake in the fashion brand to a group of investors for $2.5 billion, according to reports. The money is said to be intended to help grow the company with new stores set to open in Europe and Asia. The company has more than 100 stories around the world and reportedly is hoping to double that number next year.
Season 9 of Project Runway premiered last month.
