We all know how awesome it is to live in Tampa Bay, but apparently a world-renowned fashion designer has discovered our tropical paradise.

American designer Michael Kors, who is known for his handbags and women's sportswear, has purchased a 2.25 acre vacant lot on Longboat Key.

The Bradenton Herald reports that Kors purchased the lot in November for $6 million.

Kors is a New York native whose mother was a model. According to Wikipedia, his designs have been worn by celebrities Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum and Catherine Zeta Jones. Michelle Obama wore a Michael Kors black dress in her official First Lady Portrait.

Kors has a store at the International Plaza in Tampa and an outlet store in Ellenton.
