Hilary Swank - Hilary Swank to present Michael Kors with award
Hilary Swank is to present Michael Kors with the Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion on September 4 for his contribution to the industry.
The 'Million Dollar Baby' star will honour the 54-year-old fashion designer with the Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion on September 4 at a benefit luncheon at the David H. Koch Theater in the Lincoln Center, New York City.
Couture Council chairman Yaz Hernandez told the New York Post newspaper: ''Unlike so many other fashion events, our room is filled with women who buy. not borrow, dresses.''
Michael - who is known for designing classic American sportswear for women - previously said he was ''deeply honoured'' to be receiving the gong and was glad sportswear was finally being recognised.
He said earlier this year: ''I'm deeply honoured to receive this award from the Couture Council. They do such an amazing job putting the spotlight on design, and I think that to be included in the esteemed company that has been awarded this honour in the past is very gratifying and very exciting.''
