On Tuesday, CFDA announced that Tennis Champion and Designer Serena Williams will receive the Fashion Icon Award at this year’s CFDA Fashion Awards. According to CFDA, Williams will be the first athlete to receive this award.
“Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve used fashion as an outlet to express myself – fashion gave me the confidence to step on the court and own who I was, and where I knew I was going,” said Serena Williams. “My dream of owning my own brand, S by Serena, has become a reality and throughout my career, I have been blessed to collaborate with the most established designers and the most exciting up-and-coming creatives. I have had so much fun learning my style and allowing it to change as my life has evolved, but I’ve always held one thing true – fashion is for everyone, no matter your size, race, or income. I am incredibly honored to be receiving the prestigious Fashion Icon Award from the CFDA, an organization whose work I have long admired, and to stand among style icons I have always looked up to.”
The 2023 CFDA Fashion Awards in Partnership with Amazon Fashion will take place on Monday, November 6th at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.

On Friday, L’OFFICIEL reported the K-Pop Girl Group Le Sserafim is the newest House Ambassador for Louis Vuitton. This collaboration also marks the group’s first brand appearance through Louis Vuitton’s latest capsule collection campaign of bags, exclusive to the South Korean market.
The capsule collection featured on the group offers reimagined Louis Vuitton bags in the house’s signature styles. Inspired by the statement bags originally presented in Seoul, this collection features exclusive redesigns of iconic LV pieces. We personally think they are the perfect choice for the latest house ambassadors by the French fashion house. Stay tuned as we touch more on the K-pop and fashion connection in a later post.
