Meet the CFDA’s 40 Newest Members

+

Always expanding its talent pool, The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) announced today their biggest class of inductees to date. The Board of Directors approved 40 new members, bringing the total membership to 508.

“The 40 new members—the highest number joining the organization in its history—add to the diversity of the CFDA community,” said CFDA CEO and President, Steven Colb. “They include designers of jewelry, eyewear, swimwear, lingerie and millinery, as well as talent from Los Angeles, Kansas City, Miami and Austin.”

In addition to adding some fresh faces to its fashionable family, the CFDA announced a shift in leadership at the top of the hierarchy. After nearly 10 years as the organization’s president, designer Diane Von Furstenberg has changed her title to, “Chairman,” now heading up the board of directors.

To celebrate, newly appointed CFDA Admissions Committee Chair, Reed Krakoff, will host the a “New Members Party” at his home on October 27. Though most of the inductees are far from being household names, there are a few exciting additions in the group incuding Shayne Oliver of Hood by Air, Sally LaPointe, Rosie Assouline, Anna Khouri, and Floriana Gavriel and Rachel Mansur of Mansur Gavriel.
