Fashion retailer Barney has plans to pay tribute to iconic model Iman. The 54-year-old Somali model will also receive the “Fashion Icon Award” at this year’s CFDAs. Barney’s creative director Simon Doonan is notorious for his fascinating window displays at the Madison Avenue store. Doonan will dedicate two full window displays to the influential model. According to Vogue UK, Doonan will feature a Bruce Weber portrait of the model with quotes from Diana Vreeland and her rocker husband David Bowie.

Iman’s windows will launch on May 11 and will run for three weeks. You be certain our New York correspondents will run over for snaps. Stay tuned for pics!
