Solange Knowles will be honored by The New School at the 70th Annual Parsons Benefit. The event, held on May 21st at Pier 60, will also honor Gucci CEO Marco Bizzarri and Farfetch CEO and founder Jose Neves. This lineup is chosen based on their stellar efforts in fashion, entrepreneurship, technology, and sustainability. Last year, this recognition was given to Rihanna for her relentless work towards accessible education for all women. The benefit is held each year by The New School's College of Performing Arts to raise funding for scholarships.

The New School took to Instagram to announce the news, saying in a post, "It is our great pleasure to honor these pioneers of fashion, entrepreneurship, technology, sustainability, and entertainment at the 70th Annual #ParsonsBenefit on May 21st."
