Instagram to be honoured by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA)
The first business to receive the media award
Following its founder Kevin Systrom's courting of the fashion industry during Paris Fashion Week, Instagram and fashion is deepening its friendship, as the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) announce it will be honoured with a special award.
The 2015 CFDA Fashion Awards will honour the popular social media platform on June 1, awarding Instagram with the 'Media Award in Honour of Eugenia Sheppard' – marking the first time the prestigious award has been given to a business over an individual.
