Behnaz Sarafpour has nabbed the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award for fashion. The New York-based designer has been nominated for the CFDA's Swarovski Award for Women's Ready to Wear a whopping three times since launching her namesake label in 2001 and she was a finalist for the Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund, but this is the first time she's been recognized on a national scale. Kudos. [StyleBistro]
