Michael Stars was founded in 1986 with one simple premise: to make people happy. Co-founders, Michael Cohen and Suzanne Lerner, set out to create effortless fashion that was timeless and comfortable—meant to go with people wherever they went in life. What started with an iconic, one-sized tee that created a fashion movement, has evolved into a collection of contemporary essentials that includes style-driven silhouettes and accessories; crafted with quality and made to last.
As a women-led and family-owned business, Michael Stars continues to produce the majority of its garments in Los Angeles to ensure quality production and provide fair wages and economic opportunity for the community. The Michael Stars Foundation, established by Michael and Suzanne more than 15 years ago, is a major supporter of grassroots organizations building critical pathways to equality.
