Karl Lagerfeld is having a big week, which we’d imagine is pretty standard for the fashion giant. Following the news of his guest appearance on Kim Kardashian’s wildly successful mobile app, the British Fashion Council announced today the 82-year-old designer will receive an Outstanding Achievement Award on Nov. 23 at the British Fashion Awards.

Lagerfeld joins an impressive lineup of previous winners, including Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour, iD Founders Terry and Tricia Jones and Designer Manolo Blahnik. His award is in recognition of the designer’s impressive lifelong contributions to the industry as creative director of luxury labels Chanel and Fendi.

“Karl Lagerfeld defines outstanding,” said British Fashion Council Chairman Natalie Massenet. “In Karl’s hands the future of fashion will be an exceptional one.”
