The Council of Fashion Designers of America is forging a relationship with Cartoon Network.

“I wanted to make a mental connection with what’s going on in the cartoons,” said Kawanishi, who usually designs based on distinct themes ranging from Rastafarianism to southern hip-hop.

“Escada has a heritage of dressing and celebrating strong creative women. The event is quintessentially New York and supports art education in the city’s public schools,” said Escada’s chief executive officer, Iris Epple-Righi. “We are thrilled to play a small role in securing education for the next generation of creative minds.” 
“Escada is utterly glamorous but also cool and modern. The brand is a perfect partner for the Frick Young Fellows Ball; we’re both grounded in our heritage but looking to the future,” said Amory McAndrew, chair of the Young Fellows Steering Committee at the Frick. “The theme of the evening is inspired by the rich and textured Veronese painting, Allegory of Virtue and Vice.
