Congratulations are in order to Rihanna as she has now been selected to be honored at the Parson’s School of Design Benefit. She was recently honored at Howard University, where she received the “Humanitarian of the Year” award. Now Rihanna will be honored for her work and also her amazing style alongside Eileen Fisher and Neiman Marcus.
Joel Towers, the executive Dean at Parsons School of Design released a statement saying, “Parsons is proud to present Rihanna with this honor, as she has inspired millions through her powerful music and distinct style. She has championed our recent alumni on a number of occasions by wearing their designs. She is also creating important philanthropic programs, which support communities by fostering effective education, health, and emergency response programs around the world through her Clara Lionel Foundation.”
This is so exciting news. Rihanna responded to the honor by saying, “It’s such a thrill to know that a design school as prestigious as Parsons School of Design would present me with this honor. I consistently find creative and exciting designs coming from Parsons alumni, so I feel a deep connection to the school.”
Congratulations again Rihanna.
