Here Are the 2021 CFDA Award Nominees
Author:Dhani MauPhoto: Dia Dipasupil/Getty Images for NYFW: The ShowsThe 2021 CFDA Awards are shaping up to be a pretty significant night: Not only will they markafter Covid forced the 2020 proceedings to go digital, but they also seem to reflect a response to years of criticism that the organization tends to recognize the same kinds of designers year after year.
While2020's shortlistwas considered its most diverse ever, there were only six BIPOC designers among 30 CFDA Award nominees, and the evening's biggest categories — womenswear and menswear designers of the year — still primarily featured people who'd been nominated and won several times in the past, like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen of The Row, Marc Jacobs and CFDA President Tom Ford. It was a small
step in the right direction, though, and this year the CFDA and its voters took bigger one. Christopher John Rogers is up for the all-important American Womenswear Designer of the Year Award — one of few Black designers to ever be nominated. (The last was Virgil Abloh, in 2018.) Vietnamese-American Peter Do also joins the category for the first time. Telfar Clemens, who won Accessories Designer of the Year in 2020, makes his first entry to the Menswear Designer of the Year category, as does Jerry Lorenzo of Fear of God. Of the five nominees for Emerging Designer of the Year, three are Black, including Edvin Thompson of Theophilio, Jameel Mohammed of Khiry and Kenneth Nicholson. headtopics.com
After eschewing the specialty "honoree" awards last year, the CFDA is bringing them back; recipients will include Aurora James, who will be recognized for her work on the 15 Percent Pledge, and Dapper Dan, who will be given the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award.
"The 2021 CFDA Fashion Awards mark the much-anticipated in-person return to our biggest fundraiser for CFDA's scholarship programs," CFDA CEO Steven Kolb said, in a statement. "We're also incredibly pleased to see several talented names among the nominees for the first time. American fashion is experiencing a renewed energy, and these designers play a significant role in the future trajectory of our industry."
