Michael (1949). American fashion designer and designer. He studied at the Parsons School of Design in New York. He carried out at the same time stylistic research of his own, alternating the creation of clothing with the designs of fabrics. He worked for Geoffrey Beene, where he created the wedding gown for Linda Bird Johnson. He later collaborated with Norman Norell and Donald Brooks and for the Bloomingdales department stores. His passion for design was achieved fully in the fabrics that he created for his collections, having them manufactured in Italy at the Setificio Bellotti. Audacious and imaginative, in terms of colors and patterns, they characterized the tunics and kimono suits with their spare, sober lines.
