All-American optimism was the theme of Michael Kors’ Spring 2020 runway show, which took place this morning at 10 AM at the Duggal Greenhouse in Brooklyn. From the show space, which was transformed into a green, sun-dappled park, to a moving musical performance by the Young People’s Chorus of New York City, the show was a celebration of the American dream.

“I am a native New Yorker and I wanted this show to highlight the strength and optimism and can-do attitude of our city,” said Michael Kors. “The collection explores the balance of pragmatism and charm and power and romance that is at the core of American fashion. It is a celebration of the diversity of American style and beauty.”

After arriving at the Duggal Greenhouse, guests were invited to step inside a special photo set offering a stylized take on a classic picnic. They then took their seats on benches inside the runway show venue, which had been transformed into a park using live maple, ash and oak trees rented from Long Island area nurseries.

This year’s runway show featured a performance by the Young People’s Chorus of New York City, conducted by Francisco J. Nunez. On a mission to provide children of all cultural and economic backgrounds with a music education, the chorus seeks to fulfill each child’s potential while enriching the community.
