Nominations for each award category were submitted by the CFDA Fashion Awards Guild, made up of members of the CFDA, along with top fashion retailers, journalists, and stylists.
The 2021 CFDA Fashion Awards will take place on Wednesday, November 10th, at THE POOL + THE GRILL, the iconic venue housed within the landmark Seagram Building on Park Avenue. The event marks a return to an in-person format after the 2020 CFDA Fashion Awards were held digitally via CFDA’s RUNWAY360 platform.
The 2021 CFDA Fashion Awards mark the much-anticipated in-person return to our biggest fundraiser for CFDA’s scholarship programs. We’re also incredibly pleased to see several talented names among the nominees for the first time. American fashion is experiencing a renewed energy, and these designers play a significant role in the future trajectory of our industry.”
-Steven Kolb, President and CEO of the CFDA.
The 2021 CFDA Fashion Awards will be produced in accordance with CDC and New York State Health Guidelines.
The Impression wishes to congratulate all the nominees and wish them a prosperous award season.
