Awards News by CFDA : Tonight, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) celebrated the winners and honorees of the 2019 CFDA Fashion Awards at the Brooklyn Museum in New York. Hasan Minhaj and Jessica Williams joined the evening's presenter lineup, which also included Yara Shahidi, Bernadette Peters, and Tom Ford.

Jessica Williams presented the evening's Womenswear Designer of the Year award to Brandon Maxwell, and the Accessory Designer of the Year award to Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen for The Row. Hasan Minhaj presented the Menswear Designer of the Year award to Rick Owens, and the Emerging Designer of the Year award to Emily Adams Bode for Bode.

Jennifer Lopez was named Fashion Icon, presented by Tom Ford.

Harold Koda presented Lynn Yaeger with the Media Award.

Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen was recognized with the Valentino Garavani and Giancarlo Giammetti International Award, presented by Anna Wintour.

Valentino Garavani and Giancarlo Giammetti are generously underwriting the International Award through their foundation, the non-profit Fondazione Valentino Garavani e Giancarlo Giammetti which is focused on charity and the promotion of culture and art.

The Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Bob Mackie by Bernadette Peters.

The Founder's Award in honor of Eleanor Lambert was presented to Carine Roitfeld by Tom Ford.
Barbie received the Board of Directors' Tribute, which was presented by Yara Shahidi.

The Positive Change Award was presented to Eileen Fisher by Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne.
In one of the highlights of the evening, Michael Kors surprised outgoing CFDA Chairwoman Diane von Furstenberg with a tribute before she handed over the organization's Chairmanship to Tom Ford.

"I have been privileged to lead the CFDA for the last 13 years," said Diane von Furstenberg. "In fashion, we are about glamorous entrances, but beautiful exits are equally important. I could not have wished for a better exit, a more glamorous upgrade, and a better successor than Tom Ford."

"I am honored to be the new Chairman of the CFDA and excited about all the opportunities I see in the future of American fashion," said Tom Ford, the new Chairman of the CFDA. I have spent most of my career living and working in Europe, but I am an American fashion designer at heart who started here on Seventh Avenue. When I was asked to take on this new role, I felt a sense of duty to give back to our industry and to support our designers and the American fashion system in any way that I can, and in particular to help the next generation of talent succeed."

"Tonight, at the Brooklyn Museum, designers, business partners, friends, supporters and muses have come together to celebrate our industry," said Steven Kolb, President and CEO of the CFDA. "You have built American fashion into a cultural influence that drives our economy."

The 2019 CFDA Fashion Awards red carpet was broadcast live on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter. Coverage of the ceremony was featured on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter as well as on
