NEW YORK — More than two years into his drive to center the focus of the Council of Fashion Designers of America on its designer members, Peter Arnold divides his accomplishments as the organization’s executive director largely into two categories: the tangible and intangible.
On the tangible side, Arnold noted, the CFDA has introduced several financial benefits to membership in the organization during the past year, like access to free or discounted legal advice, the imminent introduction of access to more favorable health care plans and even discounts at certain car service companies.
