New York City, USA – The Council of Fashion Designers association of America hosted their annual FASHION AWARDS. So Rihanna won the Fashion Icon award for all of her fabulous outfits and influence on Fashion in the past year. As the winner she had to show them why she won, by wearing crystals. I guess if you ain’t got nothing to wear, might as well wear nothing! I had some favourites at the awards and this included black female personalities who wear glitzy and iconic.
What does Fashion even mean if people can wear close to nothing and be iconic. I admire Rihanna’s ‘YOLO’ attitude to fashion, young and nothing can stop this girl from Barbados.
On a serious note, Africa should have a council for fashion to recognise more African fashion and icons as well. It will in the long run offer much needed regional exposure for the talented designers from across the continent.
