This year marked the 16th consecutive year Swarovski has collaborated with the CFDA on the prestigious Awards. On Monday, June 5th at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, Swarovski and the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) celebrated the winners and honorees of the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards, hosted by Seth Meyers.  

The Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent applied to womenswear, menswear and accessory design. The winners were Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia for Monse by actress Kerry Washington; providing the designer duo with financial support from Swarovski and innovative Swarovski crystal resources. Also Kenneth Cole was presented with the new Swarovski Award for Positive Change by musician Jon Bon Jovi.

Swarovski has a long history of philanthropy woven into our DNA. And it’s with that spirit that we wanted to celebrate this industry’s propensity for giving back. The CFDA Swarovski Award for Positive Change was created because positive change is the pinnacle of excellent design. And this year, with the Emerging Talent Award, we’ve identified those designers pushing boundaries across multiple categories. These designers are the visionaries of tomorrowand we’re proud to champion them today.”  –Nadja Swarovski
