It was a long lunch table behind the Rachofsky House filled with the prettiest group of ladies in their fall finest. On the agenda that day, a few things: a preview of the auction lots for this year’s TWO x TWO for AIDS and Art, a Micheal Kors fashion show, and a lunch with the ever-charming designer thought of by many as the reigning maestro of American sportswear.

I was excited to see a contingency from Kors’ Fort Worth fan club had made the trek over to join the celebration — Alexis Collins, Candice Hansen, Theresa Hubbard, Conor Rainbolt, and Marisa Selkirk. After we were seated, the dashing Kors (wearing one of his signature looks: dark blazer, dark t-shirt, and sunglasses) joined the crowd to great applause.

As we dined on the delicious lunch prepared by Cassandra, we enjoyed a fashion show of Kors’ Fall 2021 lineup, featuring many pieces from his archival collection, followed by Spring 2022 looks. The designer enchanted us with old runway stories. “Oh, I remember Helena Christensen looking divine in this dress,” he shared. “Naomi really worked this coat when she made her way down the catwalk.” I believe Kors has also now coined the term “shrobe”:  a long coat that’s chic but loosely constructed.

Some other fun tidbits: many of the pieces from the archival collection can be custom ordered in a variety of colors. Also, a vintage gold trench coat has a QR code inside that brings up a picture of Kors and a certain famed photographer. After the show, Cindy Rachofsky,  Jennifer Eagle, Lisa Runyon, Nancy Rogers, and more went inside to do some personal shopping with the designer. What a divine way to start the weekend.
