A host of stars turned out yesterday for the annual CFDA Fashion Awards ceremony in New York, honouring American and international designers and fashion stars.
Since 1962, the Council for Fashion Designers of America has been recognising the best in American fashion. Women’s and men’s ready-to-wear and accessories designers, as well as models, stylists and fashion icons who have made their mark during the year, are presented with various awards.
For this 60th edition, the CFDA has chosen to posthumously present the Council Award to Virgil Abloh, who passed away in November 2021. The award is a tribute to his contribution to fashion and design.
The other major winners are: Catherine Holstein (Khaite brand) for the “American Womenswear Designer of the Year” award, and Emily Adams Bode Aujla (BODE) for the “American Menswear Designer of the Year” award. LUAR founder Raul Lopez received the ‘Accessories Designer of the Year‘ award and Elena Velez the ‘Emerging Designer of the Year‘ award.
Many celebrities were present at the awards ceremony, some dressed by the nominated designers in the various categories. Among them, the singer Cher, wearing a long skirt and leather perfecto by Chrome Hearts, the actress Keke Palmer in a floral dress and matching Carolina Hearst thigh-high boots, or Amanda Seyfried in an asymmetrical dress by Michael Kors.
The Kardashian family was also present: Kendall Jenner was dressed in a long, minimalist white dress with a plunging neckline from the Khaite label, while Kim Kardashian opted for a strapless, vinyl sheath dress from Dolce & Gabbana. Surrounded by her mother and sisters, she also received the Innovation Award for her brand Skims from Martha Stewart.
