The CFDA is a prestigious, invite-only, fashion association for the best of American designers. They have over 500 members and it’s considered an honor amongst U.S. fashion designers to be invited for membership. The CFDA supports new and emerging designers and has given over $9.5 million dollars in support since it’s founding. They have been leaning into black talent. Last year’s winner was Queens-born designer Telfar Clemens of Telfar. This year’s winner, Kerby Jean-Raymond, creator of Pyer Moss, brought out the best in black excellence to support his win.
