The decision to honor the reality star was reportedly conceived by designer Tommy Hilfiger. CFDA president and chief executive officer Steven Kolb told WWD:

"Tommy Hilfiger said, 'If you think about influencers and how they've changed our industry, I think we should acknowledge that. [The board] all agreed that Kim was someone who has really impacted the industry and has changed the way brands are presented. She's a friend of a lot of the designers and has had great influence on fashion globally."

The awards will take place at the Brooklyn Museum on June 4 and will be hosted by Insecure's Issa Rae. The ceremony and red carpet will be available to live stream.
