This week, New York City hosted one of the most important events in the fashion industry. Some have dubbed the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards to be a sort of Oscars of the fashion industry. Given how hard it is to get an invite to this event and the list of names present at the event, the comparison with the Oscars does make sense.
