This week, Michael Kors will join Valerie Steele, Director, The Museum at FIT for a witty and charming discussion about his accomplishments over the past 30 years in fashion. The Couture Council is a membership group dedicated to supporting The Museum at FIT, a specialized museum of fashion. The Couture Council helps make it possible for the Museum to mount world-class exhibitions of fashion, to acquire important objects for its permanent collection, and to organize public programs. To find out more about The Council, please go to Museum at FIT. Since Michael’s timeless, chic style is the “go to” for many fashion-savvy women, we have put together a perfect ensemble for a fashionable luncheon from his current collection.
