Four decades since Naomi Campbell busted on the scene as one of the top supermodels, her reign continues as the CFDA announced last week that she would be honored with the Fashion Icon Award.
“It is truly an honor to be recognized by the CFDA with this year’s Fashion Icon Award. Being from London my personal style has always been tremendously influenced by both the dynamic, ever changing nature of street culture and the music scene. I grew up in this industry and I’m forever grateful to the iconic American fashion designers who have supported me and celebrated me throughout my career”, stated Campbell in a statement to the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
The CFDA Awards is set to be held June 4th in Brooklyn.
