Founded in 1962 by fashion journalist Eleanor Lambert, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, a non-profit association, annually awards several fashion awards. The main goal of CFDA is to strengthen the influence of American fashion in the global economy and to raise funds for charitable and industrial activities. The opportunity to appear at such a prestigious event will not be missed by many famous people every year!
