On Monday evening, for the 2nd year in a row, the annual global CFDA awards were held at the Brooklyn Museum, and David Stones’ high Profile NYC Event Security was requested to lock down and secure this high profile event.
Heralded as the either the “fashion Oscars” or “fashion prom,” and certainly one of fashion’s biggest nights, the event once again drew a glamorous crowd of iconic designers, buzzy up-and- comers and their well-dressed celebrity muses.
The ceremony, which is all about crowning this year’s most accomplished American fashion designers, was stacked with glitz and glamor, with Virgil Abloh, Lakeith Stanfield, and Bella Hadid among those turning heads on the red carpet.
Comedians Hasan Minhaj and Jessica Williams presented awards in lieu of a single “host,” and the year’s most accomplished American designers were recognized, in addition to previously announced honorees including Jennifer- JLO-Lopez, Barbie, Carine Rothfeld and Sarah Burton.
It seems that with Tom Ford as the new chairman of the CFDA, this year’s awards ceremony at the Brooklyn Museum might experience a little jolt of energy. The most influential American designers—from industry veterans like Marc Jacobs to emerging designers like Heron Preston—will be given awards for their impact on fashion by presenters Hasan Minhaj, Jessica
Williams, Bernadette Peters, and Yara Shahidi. It’s also an evening dedicated to the celebration of fashion icons and legends of all sorts, from Bob Mackie to (yes, even the plastic Mattel creation is the recipient of a major tribute award this year, in honor of her 60th birthday).
David Stone explains, “When it comes to high profile events that are made known to the public, you are always faced with difficult challenges with, over excited fans, stalkers, event crashers, and anyone looking to defame or embarrass the event as a whole.”
