This New York Fashion Week (NYFW) season marks the first for Tom Ford in his new role as chairman of the CFDA, succeeding Diane von Furstenberg, who held the role for 13 years. When it was revealed that Ford would take on the role, it was reported that one of the critical topics at the top of his agenda was reinventing NYFW, potentially moving its venue to The Shed at the recently opened Hudson Yards. The official venue for NYFW will remain at Spring Studios for this upcoming season.
Outgoing CFDA Chairwoman Diane von Furstenberg talks about her tenure, then hands over the reigns to new Chairman Tom Ford at the 2019 CFDA Fashion Awards, Brooklyn Museum, New York.
