Last night marked the 16th annual Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards ceremony, and New York fashion’s finest arrived at the Hammerstein Ballroom to fete the winners. The CFDA Awards are kind of like the Oscars of fashion, and ICYMI: Raf Simons owned the evening when he became the second designer in history to win the statue for both Menswear and Womenswear Designer of the Year in the same night.
What also separates this awards ceremony from others is the fact that, when it comes to dressing for the occasion, attendees and model muses like Bella Hadid, Imaan Hammam and Hari Nef focus more on cool individuality rather than OTT glam. That means the brightest of brights, pattern mixing and unexpected details.
