Michael Kors Honoured by Couture Council

American fashion designer Michael Kors will be presented with the Artistry of Fashion award by the Couture Council of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology during a luncheon at the Lincoln Centre on 4 September 2013 that will also mark the start of New York Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2014. The award is made by a committee that comprises journalists, retailers and curators who look not only at the previous year’s accomplishments, but at a lifetime of contributions to fashion. Past recipients of the award include Valentino Garavani, Oscar de la Renta and Karl Lagerfeld.
