The Daily Front Row will debut the first-ever Men’s Fashion Awards (MFAs) this July.
The Daily Front Row will host the first Men’s Fashion Awards on July 16th in New York. The MFAs will close New York Fashion Week: Men’s; the shows are slated to take place July 13 to 16 at Skylight Studios, while the MFAs will take place at a chic, to-be-named venue in NYC. The Men’s Fashion Awards will honor the best, brightest, and most exciting talent in the menswear market with categories like Menswear Designer of the Year, Style Icon of the Year, Emerging Designer of the Year, Male Model of the Year, Shoe Designer of the Year, Streetwear Label of the Year, Website of the Year, and more.
Like The Daily Front Row‘s other annual awards shows, the Fashion Media Awards, or FMAs (which take place during New York Fashion Week every September) and the Fashion Los Angeles Awards (FLAs), the guest list for the FMAs is ultra-exclusive and capped at just 150 guests including presenters and winners. Past presenters and winners of FMA and FLA awards include Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Tom Ford, Carine Roitfeld, Kerry Washington, Christian Louboutin, Jeremy Scott, Laverne Cox, Katie Grand and many more (not to mention guests like Rihanna, Marc Jacobs, Dita Von Teese, and Katy Perry).
The inaugural New York Fashion Week: Men’s is being organized by the CFDA, and presenting sponsors include Amazon Fashion, East Dane, and MyHabit; haute watch, leather goods, and bike purveyor Shinola will also be a sponsor. The roster of talents showing at New York Fashion Week: Men’s includes the likes of Tommy Hilfiger, who was an “early champion” of the all-hommes fashion week concept, along with major players like Calvin Klein Collection, Michael Bastian, Public School, Todd Snyder, Billy Reid, Michael Kors and Rag & Bone all confirmed to show.
