The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) has named Norma Kamali as the recipient of the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award.

The 2016 CFDA Fashion Awards in collaboration with Swarovski will be held on June 6 in New York, it said in a press release.

“The CFDA Fashion Awards honor the best and brightest talent in American Fashion today,” said Steven Kolb, President and CEO of the CFDA. “A CFDA Award is one of the most coveted honors in the fashion industry.”

Norma Kamali began her business in 1967 as a shop owner making styles in her sample room, and selling from her retail store.

She has won numerous awards for fashion, film, interior design, and architecture. She has also received awards from the White House for her work with public schools, as well as a wide assortment of pro-education organizations.

Norma received an Honorary Doctorate from FIT and has been honored as the keynote speaker at several commencement addresses. She is involved with, and supports numerous women's organizations. The New York-based designer has been a key speaker and host at a variety of women's, entrepreneurial, and wellness events.

Today her brand is based on every aspect of a woman's life, from fitness, health, beauty and style to entrepreneurship. (SH)
