32 New Designers Join the CFDA!


Today is an exciting day for the Council of Fashion Designers of America. The organization just introduced 32 new members, bringing the total membership to 454! What does this mean for the new additions? “Acceptance into the CFDA family is validation of the designer’s talent and is an opportunity to access the many offerings and programs provided by the organization,” explained the CFDA’s CEOSteven Kolb. The chance to be honored at the CFDA Fashion Awards, doesn’t hurt, either.
