CFDA Awards

The awards this year had marked the 50th anniversary of the CFDA. The ceremony kicked off with a fashion show at the Lincoln Centre's Alice Tully Hall. The event was hosted by the Seth Meyers who sported the memorable black lace dress from Marc Jacobs and started off by quoting "Fashion people like hating things more than liking things, so I win either way" I think this one would be going in my collection of fashion quotes and it just cracked me up! Being a fashion student I've actually always see this happen we just always find it rare that people actually appreciate things and its always mostly about criticizing one. But oh well, people can never change it. Moving on-
