Whenever I hear the letters C, F, D, and A, I am filled with excitement—why? Well, in my opinion, the CFDA or the Council of Fashion Designers of America, is one of the most amazing organizations that the fashion industry has ever seen. It has been around for over 40 years, as a successful not-for-profit trade association of over 350 members that leads industry-wide initiatives and RSVP-worthy events.
But wait, it gets even better.
Just a few days ago the CFDA paired up with Lexus for an Ec0-Fashion Challenge that pushes sustainable practices in replacement of environmentally-harmful methods of production and manufacturing. Ten finalists have been chosen based on their most recent collections—and in order to qualify, 25% of their work had to have been done in an eco-conscious manner.
So who are the 10 noteworthy designers to watch??
