The CFDA & The Weinstein Company Partner For Live Telecast of the 2016 CFDA Fashion Awards


It’s that time of the year again! The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) has announced this year’s nominees and honorees and we will get to watch the show live via a national outlet that will be announced closer to the date. The CFDA has partnered with the Weinstein Company for a live telecast of the red carpet arrivals and the awards ceremony. The CFDA Fashion Awards telecast will not only broaden the CFDA’s audience and give the nominees and honorees more exposure, but it will also allow us to swoon over our favorite designers and to discover new ones. The 2016 CFDA Fashion Awards in collaboration with Swarovski will be held on June 6th at the Hammerstein Ballroom.
