FIT Couture Council Luncheon

Yesterday I attended the Fashion Institute of Technology's Couture Council Luncheon at Lincoln Center.  The luncheon has become an annual kick-off to fashion week in NYC, not to mention the start of the Fall charity event season in NY.  The luncheon helps support FIT's museum.  This year Michael Kors was honored and the attendees were not only NY's fashionistas, but many well known players in the fashion world.  The list is long, but the ones I personally spotted include designers, models, stylists, actors, department store executives and fashion magazine editors:  Iman, Hilary Swank, Stacy London (What Not to Wear), Robert Verdi, Simon Doonan (Barneys), Linda Fargo (Bergdorf Goodman), Dennis Basso, Michelle Smith (Milly) and Eric Javits.

The luncheon invitation
This is the third or fourth year I have attended and it's always fun to see what all the ladies are wearing.  I think most women try to wear something by the designer who is being honored.  Since Michael Kors was the honoree I naturally reached for my Michael Kors accessories:  shoes and a bag.

I adore these Michael Kors leopard print wedges
I love the oatmeal color of this bag, so neutral!
Every year there is a goody bag with a few items from the designer being honored and from FIT.  This year we received a Michael Kors fragrance and a notepad and notecards from FIT.

I had a very nice time at the luncheon and was seated with some interesting people including the Dean of FIT's graduate school.  It's always fun to sit with people from the institution and/or charity involved and get some behind the scenes insight.  I can't wait for next year!
