The Neiman Marcus Awards is a platform to recognize and amplify breakthrough luminaries in fashion globally.

The platform features the prestigious Neiman Marcus Award for Distinguished Service in the Field of Fashion. Last year, we announced an extension that exemplifies the power visionary leaders have on the fashion industry with the Neiman Marcus Award for Creative Impact in the Field of Fashion and the Neiman Marcus Award for Innovation in the Field of Fashion. The addition of these two accolades signify the program’s intent to look to the future of the industry while nodding to the retailer’s 86-year legacy of celebrating global fashion luminaries and delighting the luxury customer.

The reimagined awards are an extension of our growth strategy to Revolutionize Luxury Experiences through our differentiated business model. The platform celebrates our brand partners who share an interest in our innovative approach to retail and purpose-driven commitment to creating impact. Neiman Marcus will partner with award recipients to conceptualize unique activations and immersive experiences, investing the full strength of its merchandising and brand marketing magic to maximize the program’s reach to the US luxury customer.

NEIMAN MARCUS AWARD FOR DISTINGUISHED SERVICE IN THE FIELD OF FASHION 2024 HONOREE:
Maria Grazia Chiuri

Maria Grazia Chiuri has been named the 2024 recipient of the Neiman Marcus Award for Distinguished Service in the Field of Fashion. Monsieur Christian Dior won the same distinction himself from Stanley Marcus in 1947.

Chiuri’s internationally acclaimed career spans over 25 years with some of the world’s most iconic fashion houses including Fendi and Valentino. Through her leadership and creative passion, she has brought an elegant and modern vision that pays homage to the house’s heritage and revolutionary codes originally created by Monsieur Dior. Her insightful perspective inspires and engages women who recognize themselves in her fashion.

In less than a decade at the helm, Chiuri has led Dior to new heights as one of the most desirable luxury brands globally. Through her platform, she has showcased a multitude of female creatives on an unprecedented level and beyond her designs, she values community and culture. Chiuri has earned notable recognition for her efforts to create stronger female leadership and permanent impact on the industry. As a women co-founded and majority women-led organization, Neiman Marcus Group shares her value of women’s empowerment within the company and industry.

NEIMAN MARCUS AWARD FOR CREATIVE IMPACT IN THE FIELD OF FASHION 2024 HONOREE:
Daniel Roseberry

Daniel Roseberry, Creative Director of Schiaparelli, is announced as the 2024 recipient of Neiman Marcus Award for Creative Impact in the Field of Fashion. Roseberry receives the award for the unrivaled creativity and craftsmanship he has brought to Schiaparelli.

Roseberry is being recognized for bridging art with fashion to successfully embody the surrealist and whimsical house codes for which the brand is known, through a modern lens. The Texas-born designer has captured the attention of the fashion industry and the world’s most influential celebrities—carrying on the legacy of founder Elsa Schiaparelli, who was also recognized in 1940 by Stanley Marcus.

Neiman Marcus Group is Schiaparelli’s largest retail partner and continues to leverage its differentiated business model, expertly curated product assortment, and exclusive distribution to create a devoted based of Schiaparelli enthusiasts amongst its customers. Since opening boutiques at Neiman Marcus Downtown Dallas and Beverly Hills in 2022 and 2023 respectively, the Schiaparelli customer has been highly engaged and loyal to the brand’s creations. NMG’s exclusive also includes a Schiaparelli boutique at Bergdorf Goodman—showing the draw of the retailer’s American luxury customer base.

Simon Porte Jacquemus

Simon Porte Jacquemus, Founder and Creative Director of Jacquemus, has been named the 2024 recipient of the Neiman Marcus Award for Innovation in the Field of Fashion.

Jacquemus challenges the status quo through distinct show presentations, marketing, and merchandising tactics that have set a new tone for the future of the fashion industry.

Since Neiman Marcus started carrying the French designer in Spring 2022, the handbag business has grown exponentially due to our enthusiastically engaged customers. Neiman Marcus is currently Jacquemus’ largest U.S. distributor and a key luxury partner.

THE AWARDS, THEN AND NOW

In 1938, Stanley Marcus and Carrie Marcus Neiman instituted the Neiman Marcus Award amplifying emerging designers from Europe and America that later became icons. Since its inception, it has honored more than 150 luminaries, including Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, Karl Lagerfeld, Miuccia Prada, Valentino Garavani, Ralph Lauren, Carolina Herrera, Giorgio Armani, Missoni, Elsa Schiaparelli, Salvatore and Fiamma Ferragamo, Pierre Balmain, Estee Lauder, Oscar de la Renta, and Baccarat, among others.

Today, the Neiman Marcus Awards is reimaging ways to recognize visionaries in the field of fashion, honoring those who Revolutionize Luxury Experiences and share our purpose-driven approach. The 2024 recipients of these awards will collaborate with NMG on a unique expression of their brand that comes to life through exclusive activations for Neiman Marcus customers.
