As The Council of Fashion Designers of America just announced the nominees for the CFDA awards, the glamorous event celebrating the crème de la crème of America’s most exceptional fashion creatives, the Council are determined to move ahead in-lieu of an in-person event due to the coronavirus pandemic in committing to “recognize the nominees representing the best of fashion creativity,” says chairman Tom Ford. 

With the winners being set to be announced virtually on the morning of September 14th on, this decision to digitalize the highly-anticipated annual affair, the CFDA will be “prioritizing new and existing programming to support our designer community during the global pandemic – by redirecting efforts towards next generation scholarships and making important changes to bring racial equity to the fashion industry” according to President and CEO, Steven Kolb. 

From established pioneers in the American Fashion world such as Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs, who have multiple wins under their belt, to upcoming familiar brands making waves like Staud, look through the names in fashion that were nominated yesterday for American womenswear, menswear, accessories, emerging talent and global designers.
