Earlier this week, the Neiman Marcus Group announced that Amina Muaddi and Jonathan Anderson would be the recipients of the newest Neiman Marcus Awards. While Muaddi will be awarded for innovation in the field of fashion, Anderson is being honored for creative impact in the industry. The two will be joining Brunello Cucinelli, recipient of the 2023 Neiman Marcus Award for Distinguished Service in the Field of Fashion.
“We are committed to Revolutionize Luxury Experiences, and our Creative Impact and Innovation honorees do just that through their unique brand expressions,” said Geoffroy van Raemdonck, chief executive officer of Neiman Marcus, in an official release.
Muaddi launched her eponymous brand in 2017 and quickly rose to fame. Since then, she has earned a reputation for creating the most coveted statement shoes and accessories. The Jordanian-Romanian designer counts Rihanna as one of her earliest celebrity clients and has now become a go-to for other fashion icons such as Bella and Gigi Hadid, and even Lady Gaga.
Anderson who is the creative director at Loewe, is nothing less than a visionary. Often credited with being responsible for Loewe’s success over the past decade it is no surprise that his unique sense of design has earned him this accolade. As stated by Lana Todorovich, chief merchandising officer, in the release “his thought-provoking fashion is a force that transcends across both men’s and women’s categories with a courageous ability to deliver the unexpected and keep customers on their toes.”
Todorovich recognized that “It is rare in our industry for a young brand to find such immediate success” before going on to praise Muaddi not just for her “distinctive aesthetic” but also for her sense of business. Neiman Marcus started working with the designer soon after her first collection was launched and seems to be looking forward to deepening that relationship.
Both Anderson and Muaddi will be receiving their awards in an industry celebration during Paris Fashion Week that will count amongst its guests everyone from global business leaders to creative forces in the fashion world. However, the partnership between Neiman Marcus and the awardees will not end there as the company will be supporting them in merchandising and marketing. Fans of the designers can also expect a collaboration with exclusive experiences for Neiman Marcus customers.
