lorsqu'il reçut les honneurs du Conseil américain des grands couturiers en 1994


Explanation:
It's difficult to translate "honored" without knowing if he received a prize, a tribute or what. "Reçut les honneurs" is vague enough. You could also try "eu les honneurs du", "fut récompensé par" (if he got a prize).
For fashion designers, I suggest the French "grand couturier"
