She hardly needs an award for the world to know her iconic fashion industry status, but the British Fashion Council has gone ahead and given her the gong she deserves for 2019.

 

With some 35 years in the business, barely wafering from being at the top of her game, Naomi Campbell is no doubt one of the most successful, recognisable and of course iconic people within the world of fashion.

 

Which is why it’s no surprise that the British Fashion Council has decided to award her with the Fashion Icon title for 2019.

 

As the announcement was made by the institute, the 49-year-old model took to her 7.3 million Instagram followers to thank the BFC. She stated: “Thank you to the @britishfashioncouncil @97crush and to everyone who made yesterday a very special day. Such a beautiful event and I’m so honored to be receiving this award. Looking forward to December.”

Likewise, the 1983-established institution commented on the announcement on its page, firstly quoting Naomi writing: “This is an emotional award for me- this is from my peers in the industry, people I’ve grown up with since I was 15 years old”.

 

And then added: “In December the BFC will host the annual Fashion Awards at the iconic Royal Albert Hall to celebrate the exceptional individuals and influential businesses that have made significant contributions to the global fashion industry in the past year.

 

 

“This year the BFC will honour Naomi Campbell with the 2019 Fashion Icon Award for her outstanding contributions to the fashion industry.”

 

And we can’t wait to hear more about the celebrations come December.
