Originally set for June 8, the 2020 CFDA Fashion Awards was postponed due to the global pandemic. CFDA has now announced nominees for the awards to honour American fashion’s creatives. Voting for it has already begun. Winners will be announced on CFDA’s website and social channels on September 14 kicking off the Official New York Fashion Week Schedule.

For this year only, there will be no honouree categories.

“In this time of unprecedented challenge and change for our industry, we feel very strongly that it is it important to recognise the nominees representing the best of fashion creativity,” said Tom Ford, chairman of the CFDA. “We look forward to returning to an in-person celebration honouring the American fashion industry in 2021.”

“In lieu of the in-person event, we will be prioritising 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,” said Steven Kolb, president and CEO of the CFDA. “The annual gala serves as our largest fundraiser, and our hope is to continue raising money to support this work through industry contributions.”

The nominees for the Global Women’s Designer of the year are Daniel Lee (Bottega Veneta), Dries Van Noten, Miuccia Prada (Prada), Pierpaolo Piccioli (Valentino), and Rick Owens.

The nominees for Global Men’s Designer of the year are Craig Green, Dries Van Noten, Jonathan Anderson (Loewe), Kin Jones (Dior), and Virgil Abloh (Louis Vuitton).
