Known as the Oscar of fashion, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, CFDA, has just revealed and made public its list of nominees and recipients of its coveted 2021 Fashion Awards, which will be held on November 10th.


This list of nominees to which we refer is made up of all kinds of names and designers, from the most emerging and debutants, such as Aisie Schloss of Maisie Wilen, Jerry Lorenzo of Fear of God and Eli Russell Linnetz of ERL to more established designers such as Miuccia Prada, Raf Simons, Simon Porte aka Jacquemus, Daniel Lee of Bottega Veneta and the acclaimed Peter Do and Christopher John Rogers.

In addition to all these nominees, the CFDA council will make a special mention and honour Dapper Dan with the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award. Finally, another of the most important awards of the evening, the Eleanor Lambert Founder’s Award, will be presented to Aurora James for her 15% pledge, which urges major retailers to allocate 15% of their shelves to black-owned businesses.
