KANYE WEST has secured his spot in the fashion stakes by becoming the Accessories Council’s Stylemaker of the Year. The annual ceremony was held last night at Cipriani in New York.

“Kanye West is one of the most influential men in pop culture — from music to fashion. His personal style, whether on stage, in his videos or in his leisure time, pushes the envelope and continues to inspire both designers and shoppers,” says Karen Giberson, president of the Accessories Council. “As a strong supporter of the luxury accessories industry, we are delighted to honour him.”

Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz scooped the prestigious Designer of the Year accolade, while Laura Bush, won the Humanitarian Award. Rachel Rachel Roy received Brand Launch of the Year and Tiffany & Co won the Hall of Fame prize.
