CFDA announces award nominees

The original CFDA Awards were planned for June 8, but thanks to coronavirus
a wrench was thrown in that plan. However, that won’t stop America’s
governing fashion body from recognizing top tier talent.

“In this time of unprecedented challenge and change for our industry, we
feel very strongly that it is important to recognize the nominees
representing the best of fashion creativity,” said Tom Ford, chairman of
the CFDA, in a statement. “We look forward to returning to an in-person
celebration honoring the American fashion industry in 2021.”

“In lieu of the in-person event, we will be prioritizing new and existing
programming to support our designer community during the global pandemic –
by redirecting efforts towards next generation scholarships and making
important changes to bring racial equity to the fashion industry,” said
Steven Kolb, president and CEO of the CFDA, in a statement. “The annual
gala serves as our largest fundraiser, and our hope is to continue raising
money to support this work through industry contributions.”
