Tom Ford steps down as CFDA Chairman after 3 years of tenure


Esteemed fashion designer Tom Ford has stepped down as the Chairman of CFDA. Tom, who has been serving The Council of Fashion Designers of America since June 2019 will be ending his 3-year-tenure on May 31, 2022.

“On May 31st, I will be ending my three-year term as Chairman of the CFDA. When I began my role as chairman in June of 2019, my goal was to help the American fashion industry become more globally recognized for its talent and importance. I could not have imagined the extraordinary circumstances that both the industry and the world would have to navigate that a pandemic would shut the world down and change the course of our lives and of our businesses forever,” said Tom in a statement issued by the CFDA.

Tom’s replacement will be brought on board with a majority of votes in the coming fall. The new replacement will take over the designer’s responsibilities in January in alignment with CFDA's fiscal calendar. Meanwhile, CFDA’s Chief-Executive-Officer Steven Kolb will continue the duties as an Interim Chairman until December 31, 2022
