In response to the coronavirus pandemic, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) has announced the postponement of its annual CFDA Fashion Awards. The decision was made by the council’s chairman, Tom Ford, president and CEO, Steven Kolb, and rest of the board. This year’s designer nominations have also been postponed indefinitely. The awards were originally scheduled for June 8, 2020 at the New York Public Library.
In the CFDA’s statement, it acknowledged the impact of the coronavirus on its global community of members. The organization has also outlined several resources for designers to consult during this crisis on its website.
The Fashion Awards marks the second major fashion event that is being put on hold. Earlier this week, the Costume Institute announced that this year’s Met Gala is also being postponed due to the coronavirus.END
