CFDA 2022: awards and stars

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.
