Fashion, retail and beauty’s top leaders will gather for the annual WWD Apparel + Retail CEO Summit Oct. 24 to honor their own and download the latest industry intelligence and news, including an update from Rihanna.
The powerhouse multihyphenate is expected to talk about her Fenty x Puma clothing and shoe line, her beauty launch and other projects.

Karl Lagerfeld will receive the John B. Fairchild Honor, which is dedicated to the lifetime of service and fashion influence of WWD’s late chairman and editorial director.
