"Join SCAD for an in-depth conversation with David LaChapelle, who will receive the prestigious SCAD Étoile during SCAD FASHWKND in recognition of his outstanding contributions to art, fashion, film and photography. After the presentation, LaChapelle will share insight into his prolific 30-year career as a photographer and director. His striking images have been featured in numerous magazines from Vogue to Rolling Stone, and he has photographed some of the world’s most recognizable faces.
Étoile — “star in the sky” in French — connotes brilliance, luminosity and glamour. The SCAD Étoile is a tribute to the biggest and brightest stars of the fashion, style and design realms, and recognizes trendsetting, innovative leaders for their monumental contributions. LaChapelle joins a distinguished coterie of SCAD Étoile honorees, including Carolina Herrera, Pierre Cardin, David Yurman, Catherine Deneuve, Cornelia Guest, Russell Simmons, Dakota Jackson, Graydon Carter, Sir David Tang, Robin Givhan and Margaret Russell.
The presentation and conversation are free and open to the public."
