Scheduled to take place on September 4, 2013 at New York City’s Lincoln Centre, the event will be attended by a bevy of high-profile guests, including the likes of Anna Wintour (editor-in-chief of American Vogue), designer Reem Acra and models Iman Abdulmajid and Patti Hansen.
 
An alumnus of FIT, Kors has dressed many international A-listers like Jennifer Lopez, Rachel McAdams, Elissa, Heidi Klum, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michelle Obama.
 
The Couture Council is a membership group dedicated to support The Museum, a specialized museum of fashion, at FIT. The group helps in organizing exhibitions and other fundraising events at the museum.
