The Council of Fashion Designers of America has released its list of nominees for the 2019 CFDA Awards, which includes a number of prominent and emerging American designers.
The nominees were announced during a week that also saw the appointment of Tom Ford as the CFDA’s new chairman. Ford will replace Diane von Furstenberg, who served for 13 years.
Every year, the CFDA Awards honors American fashion in women’s wear, men’s wear and accessories in addition to other fields relevant to the industry. From standout fashion moments — who can forget Rihanna’s barely there Swarovski crystal dress? — to celebrating emerging designers, the CFDA Awards serves as one of the biggest nights in fashion.
