CFDA Fashion Awards: Monday 4th June 2018, The Manhattan Center, New York, USA
Each June, the international fashion community honors the best and brightest in American design at the CFDA Fashion Awards. Founded in 1981, they are the highest honor in fashion and recognize the outstanding contributions made to American fashion in womenswear, menswear, and accessories as well as journalism, creative vision, personal style, and lifetime achievement.
In 2017, the CFDA introduced a unified Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent that applies to womenswear, menswear and accessory design. Additionally, CFDA added the Swarovski Award for Positive Change, which honors an individual in the U.S. fashion industry who has made a positive impact on American communities and has improved the welfare of others.
Nominations for each award category are submitted by the CFDA Fashion Awards Guild, an invitation-only network made up of the 500+ members of the CFDA, along with top fashion retailers, journalists, stylists and influencers. The nominees as well as recipients of the honorary awards are ratified by the CFDA Board of Directors. The Guild also votes for the winners for Womenswear, Menswear an Accessory Designer of the Year, as well as the unified Swarovski Awards for Emerging Talent.
Last year (2017) we saw a variety of stars win awards. Raf Simons of Calvin Klein won both Womenswear and Menswear designer of the year awards. Cecile Richards, Gloria Steinem and Janelle Monaé won the CFDA Board of Director’s Tribute awards and Franca Sozzani winning the Style Icon award. This year (2018) there are a bunch of nominations for a variety of awards including Womenswear and Menswear Designer of the Year.
