The Most Rave-Worthy Looks At The 2019 CFDA Awards + Winners’ List

The 2019 Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Awards took place last night at the Brooklyn Museum for the second time in a row. The CFDA Foundation which has Tom Ford taking over as Chairman this June was founded in 1962 as a not-for-profit trade association. Its membership consists of more than 500 of America’s foremost womenswear, menswear, jewellery and accessory designers.

Often referred to as the Oscars of fashion, the annual CFDA Awards recognizes outstanding achievement in the fashion and entertainment industries and as always, the event did not disappoint.

The apex of the night was Diane Von Furstenberg’s speech after Michael Kors surprised her with a tribute before she handed over the organisation’s chairmanship to Tom Ford. “I have been privileged to lead the CFDA for the last 13 years. In fashion, we are about glamorous entrances, but beautiful exits are equally important. I could not have wished for a better exit, a more glamorous upgrade, and a better successor than Tom Ford.” She said.
