Karl Lagerfeld will be in New York City on September 10, the same day as Fashion’s Night Out, to receive an award. The Couture Council of the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology will honor the designer with the Fashion Visionary Award at a benefit luncheon. Valerie Steele, director of the Museum at F.I.T., said the panel of judges chose him because “he is not just incredibly respected within the fashion world, but also known to everybody and instantly recognizable.” The award ceremony is during the day, which means his evening plans have yet to be determined. Hopefully, Anna Wintour can lure him to go out and promote New York Fashion Week. If not to the public fashion show, or Macy’s in Queens, than at least to one of the two Chanel stores or the Fendi shop in town.
