Dear iDEALS, the Barcelona-based cultural institution devoted to the promotion of design and creativity, FAD (Fostering Arts and Design), has revealed that Diane Pernet will receive its distinguished FAD Medal this year. The ceremony will take place at 21:00 on 26 April at FAD’s headquarters: Convent dels Àngels, Plaça dels Àngels 5-6, Barcelona, Spain.
“We would need thousands of adjectives to define one of the best-drawn careers in the fashion world. Diane Pernet is versatile, multidisciplinary and innovative. As a designer, fashion editor, talent scout, an exquisite critic in the fashion world and a guru of creativity, she defines trends and practically invented the profession of the fashion blogger.”
