All-American optimism was the theme of Michael Kors’ Spring 2020 runway show, which took place yesterday 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.
