What a moment for not just hip-hop, but for fashion . Last night The Council of Fashion Designers of America held their annual awards at New York’s Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center. One of the biggest honorees was Pharrell who was presented the ‘Fashion Icon of the Year’ Award from one of his longtime friend and collaborators, Kanye West.
Kanye called Pharrell his fashion icon–that alone should warrant an award–and said there is no Ye or A$AP Rocky without him. Watch the presentation and Pharrell’s awesome speech below.
