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.

"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.
