This just in, fashionistas. The pros at our Phoenix and San Diego consignment store are excited to break the news to our west coast ladies. In case you haven’t heard, the one and only Rihanna will officially be receiving the incredible CFDA Fashion Icon award this June 2014.
For those of you who know (and love) the CFDA – or the Council of Fashion Designers of America – we feel your excitement, girl. But for those who are a little newer to the fashion block, we’ll give you a brief lowdown on the organization and its latest icon award recipient announcement.
As a not-for-profit trade association, the CFDA is made up of more than 400 of America’s most incredible jewelry, womenswear, menswear, and accessory designers. It is also the creator of the separate CFDA foundation, a not-for-profit organization whose goal is to raise funds for charity activities.
So what exactly is the CFDA Fashion Icon award? Well, its just one of the most incredible awards given out at the annual CFDA Fashion Awards event (this year, held on June 2) designed to honor those who have made countless contributions to the fashion industry.
Past winners have included Lady Gaga, Iman, Kate Moss, Nicole Kidman, Johnny Depp, Sarah Jessica Parker, and C.Z. Guest.
And this year, our favorite Bad Girl RiRi will accept the gorgeous award due to the impact she’s made in the industry and pop culture as well as her incredible philanthropic partnership with the MAC AIDS Fund’s Viva Glam campaign.
