NEW YORK - Fashion Week is in full swing in New York City, and News 12’s Elisa DiStefano was there when Great Neck native and designer Kenneth Cole made his return to the runway after a seven-year Fashion Week hiatus.

Cole says he never imagined any of the glitz and glamour of fashion week while he spent his days at Great Neck North High School. These days he says he loves creating clothes and creating new content.

Over his seven-year break from the Fashion Week runway, Cole says the world has changed fashion in ways he never could have imagined. He adds that the social media aspect has made it possible to share all of his new fashions simultaneously around the world.

Cole also celebrated his label's 30th anniversary the night his latest fashions hit the runway.
