Rihanna Has Yet Another Major Honor Coming Her Way This Year
This one from the Parsons School of Design Benefit.
Congratulations are in order for Rihanna, as she will be honored at the 69th Annual Parsons School of Design Benefit along with Neiman Marcus and Eileen Fisher. A designer herself, the school recognizes how she has “inspired millions through her powerful music and distinct style,” which counts wearing designs from Parsons alumni on numerous occasions, and her philanthropic efforts around the world. RiRi responded with gratitude:
“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. But I am especially grateful that Parsons would recognize me for the work I’ve done in regards to philanthropy.”
The benefit will take place on May 22 at New York’s Pier 60, and if her acceptance speech is anything like the one she gave for being Harvard’s Humanitarian of the Year, it’ll be a win for us all.
