Designer Michael Kors opened his new flagship store at Rockefeller Center this week.
The massive store is located on Fifth Avenue and takes up 7,000 square feet of space and holds a special place in his heart.
He told WWD:
"We’d always come ice-skating here, me very badly and grabbing the railing. I celebrated my 30th birthday at the Rainbow Room with a fake surprise party that I wasn’t surprised by."
We'd love to see Michael Kors on ice! Ha!
To celebrate the opening, the CFDA Lifetime Achievement Award winner is shutting down 49th St for Fashion's Night Out where the Rockettes will put on a special performance.

After a decade of not creating any new scents, fashion designer Nicole Miller has just released her newest perfume.
Her latest fragrance, simply called Nicole Miller, is the third perfume created by the designer.
And it better be good as it's apparently taken about a year to create.
In a recent interview, Miller reveals:
I had two fragrances over 10 years ago that did quite well and I had been wanting to do something new.
I wanted something surprising, memorable and young – nothing too powdery or floral. I really love the fruit and wood notes. I always like the word delicious and wanted the fragrance to express that. I am so pleased that is exactly what we have achieved.
My apparel designs are often very counter trend and I wanted that same thing for the fragrance. Women who think young like to wear my clothes and i wanted the same reaction to the fragrance.
The Nicole Miller perfume was just released this week and will be available exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue for the next six months.

This is just awful!
Civil rights group Make the Road New York sent two subjects, one transgender and one not, to apply for jobs at 24 different stores.
Out of all the stores that were applied to J. Crew treated the potential transgender employee unfairly, but when it came to the other applicant they offered them the job.
After the results, the civil rights group staged a protest outside the company's Fifth Avenue store.
Also worth noting is Dean & Deluca was the only store to offer jobs to both applicants and Virgin Megastore only offered the job exclusively to the transgender subject.
