The CFDA awards this year represent a missed opportunity
The fact that the CFDA awards weren't re-thought this year to better reflect the current moment was a mistake, writes Vanessa Friedman. "In a time when the system itself is under scrutiny in a multitude of ways — from the way its constant churn of collections and shows devalues creations to its racism — nominating a handful of very familiar names as the very best fashion has to offer simply serves to perpetrate that system." {New York Times}
