Raf Simons and his vision for Calvin Klein were honored by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) in New York City on Monday.

The chief creative officer was presented with both the Womenswear Designer of the year and the Menswear Designer of the year awards at the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards.

The Womenswear Designer of the Year and Menswear Designer of the Year awards are given by the CFDA to American designers who have made the most outstanding contributions to and have influenced the direction of women’s and men’s ready-to-wear fashion with his or her Spring and Fall 2017 collections.
