Valentino are honoured to announce that Pierpaolo Piccioli has been conferred with the CFDA “International Women’s Designer of the Year” Award.
‘Far from the spotlight, the crowd, the toasts and the parties I accept this award with immense gratitude for the trust and benevolence of my colleagues and friends. The atypical condition of the ceremony underlines the essence of this achievement: everyday dedication and love for beauty, in all of its meanings. I interpret this award as a reminder, for all the amazing work that my team did, all the support that I’ve received by my family and for the huge opportunity that life gave to me, doing what I love as a job. I daydream sometimes of what I would or could do if I wasn’t a fashion designer..in the end I am exactly where I want to be. So thank you @CFDA and thank you @Tomford for reminding me how lucky I am.’
