Like the Grammys or the Oscars, the CFDA wants to encourage the nominating guild “to really look at the full spectrum of talent” with the aim of representing the fashion industry’s inclusivity and diversity.
Laura Vassar and Kristopher Brock of Brock Collection were chosen as the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund’s newest winners.
Beyoncé received the Fashion Icon Award, while Donna Karan, Norma Kamali and Alessandro Michele also were honored.
To launch the yearlong partnership, the CFDA Fashion Awards will be live-streamed for 150 guests at Samsung 837, and then a few hundred more will join the after party.
About to be honored for the CFDA, Norma Kamali and Donna Karan bond over life in the ever-changing business.
