The awards for Council Of Fashion Design Of America recently took place and showed yet another successful and glamorous event. The audience were A-listers of designers, models, and business entrepreneurs gathered to celebrate the beautiful works of art in the business of fashion. The biggest award in the #CFDAAwards is the fashion icon of the year, of which Beyonce accepted with an overwhelming speech. The award was presented by Diane Van Furstenberg, the chairman of CFDA, who praised Beyonce’s latest fitness collection of Ivy Park.
During her speech, Beyonce indicted how fashion has always been part of her life, through her mother’s designs as well as her grandmother. She praised how her grandmother used fashion as means to pay her mother’s education. Here is a short quote from her speech
“I want to say thank you to every designer that works tirelessly to make people feel like they can write their own story. You all are fairy godmothers and magicians and sculptors, sometimes even our therapists. I encourage you not to forget this power that you have or take it lightly. Soul has no colour, no shape, no form. Just like all of your work, it goes so far beyond what the eye can see, and you have the power to change perception, to inspire and empower and to show people how to embrace their complications and see the flaws and the true beauty and strength that’s inside all of us”
Beyonce wore $9 million worth diamonds suite from Givenchy.
