HONORING SUI: The Council of Fashion Designers of America isn’t the only organization tipping its hat to Anna Sui this year.

The designer, who is receiving the CFDA Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award at Monday’s 2009 CFDA Fashion Awards, just made a quick trip to China, where she was honored at Saturday’s China Fashion Awards in Beijing.

Sui took home the Shanghai Media Group’s Classic Icon of Fashion and Design award at the awards ceremony and gala, which included a fashion show featuring 30 looks from her fall collection.

“This award is particularly meaningful to me because I am getting recognition from the home of my ancestors,” Sui said. “To be honored as the 2009 Fashion Icon of the Year at the China Fashion Awards has made my parents very proud.”
