The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) paid tribute to the winners and honourees of the 2015 CFDA Fashion Awards in collaboration with Swarovski at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Centre in New York.

The womenswear designer of the year award went to Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen for The Row, presented by Amanda Seyfried.

The award for menswear designer of the ear was presented to Tom Ford by Joshua Jackson.

Tabitha Simmons took home the accessory designer of the year award, presented by Taraji P. Henson.

Pharrell Williams was presented the fashion icon award by Kanye West. Williams addressed his stylistic journey, crediting his early proclivity for do-it-yourself on Chuck Taylor sneaker as a key inspiration. "Freedom is whatever you want it to be," he said.

"Fashion creates dreams and makes them happen," said CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg. "We are here tonight to celebrate fashion designers and their impact."

"Tonight, we honor talent in our industry at every level – the legendary, the established, and the emerging," said CFDA chief executive officer Steven Kolb.

"We are thrilled about our ongoing partnership with the CFDA which offers a great opportunity to support the American fashion community. The impact of winning an award on the career of an emerging designer is invaluable and in line with Swarovski's commitment to foster the next generation of talent," said Nadja Swarovski, member of the Swarovski executive board.
