Michael Kors and FIT To Kick Off Fashion Week!
Michael Kors is set to receive The Couture Council of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology’s honor for Artistry of Fashion next Wednesday. Hilary Swank will present FIT alum Kors with the honor at a benefit luncheon at Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch theatre.

Past recipients of the award include Valentino, Karl Lagerfeld, Alber Elbaz, Ralph Rucci, and last year’s winner, Oscar de la Renta.
