"The range and depth of talent honored at the CFDA Fashion Awards is the perfect proof that American fashion is a global powerhouse," said Steven Kolb, President and CEO of the CFDA. "I would like to thank Nadja Swarovski and Swarovski for their continued support of the CFDA Fashion Awards and American fashion."

"It has been 17 years since Swarovski and the CFDA first partnered to recognize the talented minds of our industry at the CFDA Fashion Awards. Having the opportunity to witness the change and evolution of the American fashion industry over the last two decades has been a true inspiration and honor," said Nadja Swarovski, Member of the Swarovski Executive Board. "In my mind, we celebrate fashion not only in its purest form of creating beautiful fabrics that adorn us, but as a true reflection of the Zeitgeist. It serves as a reminder that we influence so much more than what's 'in season' – through fashion comes powerful self-expression and continuous empowerment."

The 2018 CFDA Fashion Awards red carpet and ceremony were broadcast on Facebook Live at facebook.com/cfda. Additional highlights will be featured on www.cfda.com and CFDA's YouTube channel on Tuesday, June 5th.
