Every year, the international fashion community honors all the best moments in American design at the CFDA Fashion Awards.
We are having our own fashion awards after seeing all the beautiful pieces worn to this event. We’ll call it TBPS Fashion Awards. (If you’re not catching on to that, The Bread Poet Society Fashion Awards are now in full swing and will be held every year, starting today.)
The CFDA Awards were held at The Manhattan Center’s Hammerstein Ballroom on June 5th. Raf Simons made waves when he went home with both the Menswear and Womenswear Designer of the Year awards for his work at Calvin Klein. He was appointed chief creative officer at the label less than a year ago.
