If you have any inkling of style then you should already know why and where style phenoms like Gigi Hadid, Pharrell and Alexander Wang were collected this past weekend. The Council of Fashion Designers of America hosted their Awards show on June 1st at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center in New York City for their annual event that recognizes the outstanding contributions made to American fashion by individuals from all areas of the industry and related arts, with awards being given for design excellence in womenswear, menswear, and accessories as well as extraordinary accomplishments in journalism, creative vision, and lifetime achievement.
