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. Considered the official launch of fashion week (and filled with a crowd of women who really know how to turn it out!), the lunch is chaired by Lauren dePont, Linda Fargo, Vanessa Getty, Patti Hansen, Iman, Karolina Kurkova, Aerin Lauder, Sandra Lee, Crystal Lourd, Alexandra Richards, Theodora Richards, Renee Rockefeller, Jamie Tisch, Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis, Elettra Wiedemann, and Anna Wintour. Past recipients of the award include Valentino, Karl Lagerfeld, Alber Elbaz, Ralph Rucci, and last year’s winner, Oscar de la Renta.
