If you’ve made it to the level of being considered by The Council of Fashion Designers of America then you’re already a winner in most fashion circles. And, in a historical twist, earlier this week actress Issa Rae made hitory by being the first Black woman to host the awards. A celebration of American fashion, creativity and innovation; welcome to the fashion highlights from the 2018 CFDA Awards!
Statement Makers – 2018 CFDA Awards
Simple Classics – 2018 CFDA Awards
The impact of simplicity is often taken for granted when it comes to fashion. Clean lines and minimal fuss can either accentuate superior craftsmanship, or highlight a lack of creativity with any fashion collection. The fashion gods definitely smiles on these ladies and once again proved that less can definitely translate as more.
Pucker Up – 2018 CFDA Awards
Nothing mellow about these yellows! Contrasting pops of lemony yellow on the evening’s red carpet was like letting the sunshine in. We had forgotten just how much we loved this smile inducing color.
Romantic Overtures – 2018 CFDA Awards
Subtle touches that take a would-be red carpet look from forgettable to unforgettable. With a little help from whisper soft lace and sheer elements we fell in love at first glance with these ensembles.
