CFDA Awards

Awards weren’t the only item being passed as this year saw the passing of the touch as Tom Ford assumed the role of CFDA Chairperson from Diane von Furstenberg, who held the position for the past13 years.

This year the awards also had a new participating partner in Valentino Garavani and Giancarlo Giammetti, whom through their foundation, underwrote the International Award for the first time this year given to Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.
