That Rihanna reign just won’t let up!
According to reports, Rihanna will be honored at the 69th Annual Parson Benefit.
The songstress will be honored alongside Eileen Fisher and Neiman Marcus on May 22nd at Pier 60.
Joel Towers, the school’s executive dean, said, “Parsons is proud to present Rihanna with this honor, as she has inspired millions through her powerful music and distinct style. She has championed our recent alumni on a number of occasions by wearing their designs. She is also creating important philanthropic programs, which support communities by fostering effective education, health, and emergency response programs around the world through her Clara Lionel Foundation.”
Rihanna responded, “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.”
Work it, Rihanna! Congrats!
