Michael Kors (speaker)


October 11 1995


In this audio recording, fashion designer Michael Kors discusses a student project, "Black Tie with a Twist." The challenge is to make a casual outfit dressy and chic. He requires that the outfits must be separates (no dresses), use shades of gray that can "go to black", and employ traditional menswear fabrics, such as tweed and flannel. Students are encouraged to design for a young, contemporary Jacqueline Kennedy. Students then ask questions about the project. In the fashion show program, this project is titled, "Glamorous Gray."
