Iman honoured with the Franca Sozzani Award

“Give my children sunny smiles”

Congratulations to Iman with the news that she will be honoured with the Franca Sozzani Award for her humanitarian work and efforts to make the fashion industry more diverse.

The accolade was established by the family of the late Vogue Italia editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani and recognises women for their careers in the arts and their dedication to charitable organisations.

The 64-year-old model will receive the award at an event at the Belmond Hotel Cipriani in Venice on 27 August. It will be hosted by Sozzani's son, photographer and film director Francesco Carrozzini, who established the award with his wife Bee Shaffer, daughter of U.S. Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

“Iman's work has disrupted the fashion industry in a way similar to Franca's: bold, innovative and inclusive," Carrozzini said in a statement. "Using her platform to the best of its potential, Iman's work from lobbying the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) for an increase of diversity on the runway to impactful humanitarian work, displays her true passion and focus. We are truly honoured for her to accept the Franca Sozzani Award.”

Iman follows in the footsteps of Julianne Moore, who was the first-ever recipient of the award back in 2017, and Salma Hayek, who was feted last year.

The supermodel began her career in 1975 and was a muse of designers Gianni Versace, Halston, Calvin Klein, and Yves Saint Laurent. She went on to develop her make-up collection, IMAN Cosmetics, which caters specifically for women of colour.

Iman has also been involved in humanitarian work for the Children's Defense Fund, Action Against Hunger, and the Raise Hope For Congo campaign. (Source)
