BLACKPINK’s Lisa Selected For Jury Of 2021 ANDAM Fashion Award
WWD has reported that Lisa will be headlining the 14-person guest jury that is choosing the winner of the prestigious French fashion prize.
The award was established in 1989 by Nathalie Dufour as a joint venture between the French Ministry of Culture and the DEFI. It’s been a stepping stone for designers to achieve recognition around the world, and previous winners have included Martin Margiela, Viktor & Rolf, and Jeremy Scott.
Lisa’s fellow guest jurors include Chinese singer Chris Lee, fashion designers Kerby Jean-Raymond and Phoebe Philo, French singer and actress Lou Doillon, and more. “The jury is coming from different horizons, and represent the different facets and faces of creativity today,” said chief executive officer of Balenciaga and the 2021 ANDAM jury president Cédric Charbit. “It’s the only way that we give a good and proper reading of something that’s modern and conscious for a talent for tomorrow.”
The jury will take part in a meeting on July 1 to interview the nominees and make their final decision.
BLACKPINK successfully staged their first online concert in January, while it was recently announced that Lisa is gearing up for a solo debut. Lisa will soon also be returning as a mentor on the Chinese idol survival program “Youth With You.”
