The Council of Fashion Designers of America has released the names of nominees for arguably one of the biggest fashion awards in the global fashion industry- the CFDA Awards.
Every year, the CFDA Awards honors and recognizes outstanding creatives in the menswear, womenswear, accessories and other fields relevant to the American fashion industry. This year, we were pleasantly surprised to see new names on the list and to see that all the honorees this year are women and even more pleasantly surprised to see that the nominees for the 2019 CFDA Fashion Awards included three talented African menswear designers whose work constantly leave us in awe as they touch social issues, race, police brutality while also disrupting the norm.
