Our unique female athlete Ivet Lalova became a BG Fashion Icon, receiving her prize personally from Prof. Lubomir Stoykov - Chairman of the Academy of Fashion. The traditional annual award for the most stylish and successful Bulgarians (in the Sport category) was awarded for both her outstanding sprinting achievements and her impeccable visual culture, professional reputation and striking style. When she received the award, Ivet Lalova expressed her gratitude to Prof. Lubomir Stoykov, emphasizing: “Thank you to the Academy of Fashion for this award! It is an honour for me to accept it. I know that it is not only for being a fashion icon, but also for professionalism. I hope it brings me even more luck next year! "
The awarding of the statuette, made by jeweller Angelo Krasini, took place at the National Art Gallery. Ivet Lalova was accompanied by her husband Simone Colio.
