"Diane's unanimous election to a second two-year term as CFDA President is a great testament to the leadership she has demonstrated during her first term. In the past two years, the CFDA's membership has increased and the overall visibility of the American fashion industry has risen. New programs and direct benefits for members have been initiated. Diane's enthusiasm for and commitment to the CFDA have been unwavering and I look forward to continuing my support of her efforts on behalf of all designers."

On October 21, Elie Tahari and his wife Rory will host a cocktail party at their Soho home for CFDA members, retailers and editors to welcome the new CFDA inductees.

The new members are:
Ron Anderson and David Rees, formed TENTHOUSANDTHINGS, named for a line of the ancient Chinese philosophy – the I-Ching. The primary focus of this brand has always been to work with the finest natural gems and pearls and develop original techniques to create unique jewelry. In 1997, Anderson and Rees opened their first flagship retail store and production studio in Manhattan.

Michael Bastian, MICHAEL BASTIAN - His five-year-old eponymous line earned a nomination for the 2008 CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year award. In 2007, Bastian was nominated for the Swarovski Award for Meswear, and selected as a finalist for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. He has recently been appointed Creative Director for Menswear at Bill Blass, which he will design in addition to the MICHAEL BASTIAN collection.

Andrew Buckler, BUCKLER - His first year collection was selected for the Victoria and Albert Museum's costume archives. He launched BUCKLER in April of 2001 and now boasts two stores in New York's Soho and Meatpacking districts, and one in London's Spitlefields Market.
