The CFDA stands for The Council of Fashion Designers of America. It is a not-for-profit trade association including designers ranging from womenswear and menswear to accessory designers. The CFDA was created to raise funds for charities and industry-related activities.
Due to Covid-19, the CFDA awards that regularly take place in June to honor the leading designs of the year were moved to a streaming platform called Runway360 where they announced this year’s winners.
