New York, NY, United States (Celebrity News Service) – Fashion designer and “Project Runway” judge Michael Kors is getting ready to walk down the aisle.
The 51-year-old designer, whose real name is Karl Anderson, Jr., confirmed Friday that he and his longtime partner, Lance LePere, will be tying the knot in New York, according to the New York Post.
While there is no talk of a lavish wedding reception, the designer’s representative confirmed that the couple had received their marriage license at the city clerk’s office in Manhattan on Wednesday.
“Lance and I are very excited to finally be able to have the opportunity to marry in our home state after many years together. We have no plans for a major party, but we will be getting married privately,” Kors said in a statement to the newspaper.
The couple met more than 20 years ago, when LePere began working as an intern for Kors’ company.
Kors can be seen each week as a judge on the popular reality competition, “Project Runway,” on Lifetime.
