Michael Nolan Kouri purchased his first sewing machine after watching Project Runway.
Thinking that sewing would just be a hobby, it became an important part
of his life. After meeting with a designer friend from Ralph Lauren, Michael decided to make
his hobby a career and enrolled in fashion design school.
Upon graduating from American River College with a degree in fashion design, Michael
had the opportunity to work as head designer for Runway Couture Boutique, a vertically
integrated clothing producer and boutique located in the trendy neighborhood of Soho,
This invaluable experience, combined with his previous expericence as an
assistant home buyer at Calypso St. Barth, inspired Michael to launch his own line
Nolan Kouri in 2008.
This experience combined with Kouri's previous degree in Molecular and Cell Biology
from UC Berkeley, contributes to his unique design perspective.
