Dapper Dan becomes first dark-skinned designer to receive this lifetime achievement award

The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) on Wednesday announced they would be honoring pioneering streetwear connoisseur Dapper Dan with the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s event.

The 77-year-old Harlem native will become the first designer who has never hosted a solo fashion show to be presented the prestigious award, Complex reported. Responding to the honor on Instagram, the designer, born Daniel Day, expressed gratitude to the CFDA as well as the place of his birth.

“Isn’t it ironic how the fashion world says that Dapper Dan won the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award, without ever having a runway show?” he posted.
