Michael Stars was founded by Michael Cohen and Suzanne Lerner in 1986.
Hailing from Cape Town, a young Michael Cohen began his career in the clothing industry by establishing an agency that distributed London-based fashion lines.
Dismayed by the state of his country, he had an opportunity to leave apartheid South Africa in the late ‘70s and came to America.
Ten years after arriving in the US, he walked into the showroom of Suzanne Lerner, a natural-born entrepreneur in the apparel industry. It was this first meeting that ignited both their business and future marriage.
If you are not sure of the importance of buying products made in the USA, please visit our main site where we make a very compelling case on the virtues of buying American products and in this case the Michael Stars Women’s Shine T-Shirt.
