Fashion forward moguls get all the praise!
Stella McCartney and Lulu Guinness are receiving honorary doctorates for their admirable offerings to the fashion industry from the University of the Arts London this month.
The designers' awards will be presented at the college's graduation ceremony at the Royal Festival Hall.
Guinness poured her heart out about her degree:
"I am extremely grateful to University of the Arts London for awarding me with this Honorary Doctorate. I did not have a formal training in handbag design, so this makes this extra special."
Awww! What a special moment this is going to be for the fashionista.
Lulu is receiving her celebratory doctorate from the London College of Fashion on July 17, and McCartney will acquire her honorary fellowship from Central Saint Martins on July 18.
This is such a great accomplishment for the two wonderful ladies.
We're gushing with fashionable joy!
