The Night Wouldn’t Be Complete Without New York Icon Michael Kors

“We had a great audience that day and I love a great audience,” said Michael Kors when asked about his experience on the hot seat at the 92Y lectures with Fern. “It wasn’t about the surprise reveal – it was about talking about yourself when you’ve had a long career and we just make sure that it wasn’t boring, that it doesn’t last for 5 days and that we had fun doing it with an audience that loves fashion.” So who does Michael Kors want to see on Fern’s stage next? “Who hasn’t doine it that I think has to do it … I think maybe Anna.” No last name required.
