I'm bringing back "Best and Mess of the Week" as my first post for this month, with some quick commentary and insight on the CFDA Awards that took place Monday.
If you're not familiar with what the CFDA is then let me tell you, the Council of Fashion Designers of America is a non-profit trade association of over 450 American fashion and accessory designers. The organization's stated mission is to strengthen the influence and success of American designers in the global economy. In addition to hosting the annual CFDA Fashion Awards, the organization seeks to develop future American design talent through scholarships and support and resources in high schools, colleges, and post-graduate schools. The CFDA also provides funds to support working designers during their careers and provides business opportunities for the membership. Through the CFDA Foundation, it mobilizes its members to support charitable causes.
