Virgil Abloh, Pyer Moss' Kerby Jean-Raymond, Carly Cushnie & More Join CFDA Board

Appointed under Tom Ford as chairman.

With fashion month just around the corner, the CFDA has already announced changes such as a shorter New York Fashion Week. Now, with Tom Ford as the newly appointed chairman, the organization has announced that four new members are joining the board.

According to WWD, the members are Virgil Abloh, Kerby Jean-Raymond, Maria Cornejo and Carly Cushnie. In case you’re unfamiliar, Virgil Alboh is the founder of Off-White™ and currently the artistic director for Louis Vuitton men’s. Kerby Jean-Raymond is the founder of fashion label Pyer Moss. Maria Cornejo is a New York-based fashion designer known for her clothing line Zero + Maria Cornejo. Last but not least, Carly Cushnie is the founder of fashion house Cushnie, previously known as Cushnie et Ochs. The four new members are replacing the seats of Georgina Chapman, Kara Ross, Mimi So and Marcus Wainwright, who are now CFDA emeritus members.

Virgil Abloh, Kerby Jean-Raymond, Maria Cornejo and Carly Cushnie join current board members including Vera Wang, Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren and Ashley Olsen. When it comes to how board members are chosen, chief executive officer Steven Kolb says:

“The chairman has the discretion to recommend candidates to the board. New board members must be approved by the majority of the board. Tenure is influenced by level of participation.”
