MTV And The CFDA Announce Fashion Designer Marc Jacobs As First-Ever ‘MTV Fashion Trailblazer Award’ Recipient
NEW YORK — Earlier today, DM Fashion Book reported that Missy Elliott will be honored at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards. That’s right: “Misdemeanor” herself is this year’s recipient of the coveted Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award (see it here).
The 2019 MTV Video Music Awards will air live from The Prudential Center on Monday, August 26 at 8 p.m. ET.
In partnership with the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), MTV announced Marc Jacobs as the first-ever recipient of the MTV Fashion Trailblazer Award. The new award will honor a fashion designer who has made an indelible impact within the world of music-artist fashion.
With a legacy that spans over three decades, Jacobs is a preeminent figure in fashion and music, perfectly embodying the spirit of the Fashion Trailblazer Award.
As part of the 2019 “VMAs,” Jacobs and his design team are working with MTV to create a multimedia activation on the red carpet highlighting his creative vision. The on-the-ground experience will have a dedicated photographer and highly-stylized elements designed to travel across social platforms.
