Kim Kardashian Calls for Inclusivity in CFDA Fashion Awards Speech

“We have put a strong emphasis on continuing to shape the industry to embrace size equality and diversity as a fixture and not just a trend.”

Kim Kardashian‘s SKIMS won the CFDA’s first-ever innovation award as recognition of “a fashion visionary leading with technology and innovation” that has had a direct influence on the way consumers shop for fashion.

Upon accepting the award at this year’s ceremony, which was presented to her by Martha Stewart, Kardashian gave a speech that called for more inclusivity within the industry. SKIMS Co-Founder and CEO, Jens Grede, and Founding Partner and Chief Product Officer, Emma Grede, also joined Kim on stage to receive the inaugural award.

“We have put a strong emphasis since our launch on continuing to shape the industry to embrace size equality and diversity as a fixture and not just a trend and I see so many of you are doing just that,” Kardashian said to the audience.

On honoring SKIMS, the CFDA‘s CEO Steven Kolb shared that “With SKIMS, Kim, Emma, and Jens have pioneered new technology in the process of reinventing the concept of solutions-oriented shape-wear. Together with our CFDA Fashion Awards partner Amazon Fashion, which is a continuous innovator on behalf of customers, the CFDA is incredibly proud to honor SKIMS with the inaugural Innovation Award.”
