Karl Comes to New York

I feel sorry for Uncle Karl’s resume updater. S/he has a lot of work to do on a daily  basis. It must be hard to keep up with the toy replicas, editorial credits, beverage affiliations and multiple fashion weeks.

What’s Karl Lagerfeld done now, you ask?

Well, he’s going to be honoured with a special Fashion Visionary Award by the Couture Council at the Museum at FIT in NYC, as per WWD.

Karl's Empire State of Mind, as seen in Harper's Bazaar US, August 2008.

“I’m the new Sinatra,
And since I made it here,
I can make it anywhere,
Yeah they love me everywhere.”

-Jay-Z in Empire State of Mind

He’ll be lunching at an annual benefit, chaired by ladies who have likely mastered the art of a power lunch benefit – Daphne G, Charlotte Moss…the power list goes on.

Valerie Steele, director of the Museum at FIT said, “We chose him because he is just an absolutely outstanding designer, one of the greatest of the 20th and 21st century. He is not just incredibly respected within the fashion world, but also known to everybody and instantly recognizable.”

It all happens on September 10, 2010 – Fashion’s Night Out – and smack dab in the middle of New York Fashion Week September 9-16.

Watch the street blogger sites that week for what is sure to be constant Karl coverage.
