The 2020 CFDA Awards were originally scheduled for June 8, but due to the
coronavirus pandemic, the awards show was delayed indefinitely. By the
glory of the 21st century, the CFDA Awards took on a virtual approach this
year as most other things fashion have, including New York Fashion Week
currently taking place. Today, the CFDA announced this year’s award winners
honoring some of the best in both America’s design talent and recognizing
international design talent as well.
Gabriela Hearst won American Womenswear Designer of the Year, Kerby
Jean-Raymond of Pyer Moss won American Menswear Designer of the Year,
Telfar Clemens won American Accessories Designer of the Year, Christopher
John Rogers won American Emerging Designer of the Year, Pierpaolo Picciolo
of Valentino won International Women’s Designer of the Year, and Kim Jones
for Dior won International Men’s Designer of the Year.
Tom Ford, chairman of the CFDA, made the announcement of winners in a video
that premiered on Runway360 and CFDA’s social channels. This is the first
CFDA Fashion Award for each designer in the four American categories and
represents the most diverse group of recipients in the awards’ 39-year
history, including three Black designers and a Latina.
The 2020 CFDA Fashion Awards were sponsored by Klarna, a global payments
and shopping service. Nominees and winners were determined by the CFDA
Awards Guild which is composed of CFDA members, fashion editors, stylists,
and retail executives.
