Naomi was in tears as she accepted the prize from Sir Jony Ive, before thanking her mother for ‘raising me single-handedly’.

Calling it ‘an out-of-body experience’, Naomi said of her mother: ‘You raised me single-handedly, you were my mother and my father.’

The model also got teary as she told the crowd: ‘I learned today that I’m the first woman of colour to receive this award.

‘That leaves me to say who I consider my style icons: Grace Jones, Josephine Baker, Eartha Kitt, Donyale Luna, Bethann Hardison, Naomi Sims, Dorothy Dandridge, Diana Ross, Diahann Carroll, Janet Jackson, and Tina Turner.

‘I could go on and on, but I want to thank you for paving the way for me and inspiring a generation.’ 

In association with The British Fashion Council (BFC), The Fashion Awards celebrates individuals and businesses that have made a significant contribution to the fashion industry over the last year.

It is also a fundraiser for the BFC’s charities and aims to support future talented individuals with their creative fashion skills. 

Naomi spoke candidly about her experiences in the modelling world with The Guardian’s Weekend magazine last month.

Discussing how someone called the increase in diversity a ‘cult’, and her annoyance with this misguided view, she said: ‘To hear this called a ‘cult’, that was like, “wait a second: so you want me to feel bad now that things are turning the other way?” No.

‘We just want balance, end of story. I won’t do an all-black show, for instance, because it would be hypocritical given what I’ve stood for, for so long. Balanced inclusion.’

Going on to reveal that she had been asked to do an exclusively black catwalk show, but refused despite the offer of ‘tons of money, Naomi said: 

‘I can see clearly when brands want diversity because they get it and think it’s the right thing to do – and the ones who just think it will look bad if they don’t.’
