Fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg received the Andre Leon Talley Lifetime Achievement Award at the Savannah College of Art and Design's (SCAD) annual fashion show Saturday.

Talley, a contributing editor at Vogue magazine, and college president Paula Wallace made the presentation to von Furstenberg. SCAD honored Talley with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2000, and the award has bore his name ever since. Past honorees include Oscar de la Renta, Karl Lagerfeld and Vera Wang.

In 1972, von Furstenberg came to the fashion world with her iconic wrap-around dress. After taking a break from fashion, she reemerged in 1997 and relaunched of the dress and began transforming her company into a lifestyle brand. That original wrap-around dress is is now part of the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Smithsonian.

The fashion show is considered to be among the more prestigious student fashion shows in the U.S, with nearly 5,000 audience members attending, either in person or online. Twenty-eight students presented their final collections at the SCAD show, where their work was analyzed and critiqued by some of the top professionals in the fashion industry.

SCAD offers its students more degree programs and specializations in fashion and accessory design than any other art and design university. Fields of study include fashion design, accessory design and fashion marketing and management.
