The beauty mogul and reality TV star, 41, was introduced to Fashion idol award by actor Tracee Ellis Ross at the annual ceremony on Tuesday, December 7.
Kardashian said they had “really trusted” in her but “probably talked to her when she got the call from Kanye”.
“Thanks to Kanye for really introducing me to the world of fashion. I love fashion and I am so inspired by so many people,” she said.
“It’s like a dream where I wake up and put on these amazing clothes and try new things, take risks, I’m humble, thank you very much.”
Kardashian filed for divorce from West in February, more than six years after the couple married in Florence, Italy in 2014.
The former couple have four children together, North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2.
During Tuesday’s speech, Kardashian said she felt “humbled” to receive the award.
“I started as a wardrobe organizer and stylist. So, for me to win the fashion icon award, it was like a tough moment for me,” she said.
“I have those every day, that designers are willing to work with me. There was a time when they weren’t.”
One of Kardashian’s most famous clients during her days as a wardrobe organizer was Paris Hilton.
In an episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians in 2019, she expressed gratitude to Hilton, saying she would “do anything” for her.
She attended the ceremony wearing an all-black outfit from Balenciaga’s spring 2022 ready-to-wear collection.
The mother-of-four wore a black bodysuit with floral embroidery, underneath a fitted skirt and full-leg gloves.
She wears black sunglasses and large pearl earrings.
