Just recently, online fashion publication HYPEBEAST released its Top 100 Innovators of 2016 list, which honours the accomplishments of 100 artists who have made an impact on the world via art, culture, and fashion, and making this year's list is none other than BIGBANG's G-Dragon and former 2NE1 leader CL!
From his achievements with BIGBANG to his various solo projects, such as his own PEACEMINUSONE fashion brand, HYPEBEAST predicts G-Dragon's star to rise even further, writing that "G-Dragon’s catapult into fame doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon. Known for his quirky and experimental style on-and-off the stage, G-Dragon has made himself a front-row fixture and can be seen gracing fashion’s top shows such as Chanel."
For CL, her U.S. solo debut single "Lifted", her first solo U.S. tour, and her various forays into the fashion world caused HYPEBEAST to take notice, writing that "CL may be a household name for Koreans and K-pop fans, but 2016 is the year she made a major mark in the American fashion and music industries."
A huge congrats to G-Dragon and CL for making it onto HYPEBEAST's Top 100 Innovators list!
