Last year, Solange Knowles brought home several awards, from the Grammys to Glamour's Woman of the Year. While awards season is coming to an end, Knowles still manages to get new ones lined up. The New School's Parsons School of Design announced that she will be honored at the school's annual benefit on May 21 in New York. Other honorees include Gucci's CEO, Marco Bizzari, and Farfetch's founder, Jose Neves. This honor comes after she was named "Artist of the Year" by another prestigious institution, Harvard University. 

Executive Dean of Parsons Joel Towers told WWD, that the 31-year-old singer is chosen “for her notable contributions to the music and fashion industries." Her contributions since her album's release, go beyond singing at the White House for Obama. She even took over the Guggenheim museum for a very artsy performance titled "An Ode To" (no phones were allowed during her secret performance). And now it's time for everyone else to give an ode to her.
