2019 CFDA Fashion Awards Nominee List
The CFDA Fashion Awards is arguably one of the biggest fashion awards and nights not just in the American fashion industry but in the world as well and recently the Council of Fashion Designers of America released the names of the nominees for the 2019 fashion awards on Instagram.
Every year, the CFDA Awards honors and recognizes outstanding creatives in the menswear, womenswear, accessories and other fields relevant to the American fashion industry. This year, we were pleasantly surprised to see new names on the list and to see that all the honorees this year are women and even more pleasantly surprised to see that the nominees for the 2019 CFDA Fashion Awards included three talented African menswear designers whose work constantly leave us in awe as they touch social issues, race, police brutality while also disrupting the norm.
Ghanaian-American menswear designer and CEO of Off-White and artistic director of Louis Vuitton Virgil Abloh found his way on to this exclusive list twice as he was nominated for both Menswear Designer of the Year and Accessory Designer of the Year and Haitian-American designer Kerby Jean-Raymond of the award-winning menswear brand Pyer Moss was also nominated for the Menswear Designer of The Year while Liberian-American Telfar Clemensof Telfar was nominated for Accessory Designer Of The Year.
