While major American designers like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Tommy Hilfiger and Phillip Lim were recognized at the CFDA Awards on Monday night, there was one designer who was acknowledged who is just beginning his journey. Recent FIT graduate Kieran Dallison is the winner of this year’s CFDA/Gilt All-Star Scholarship Award, the first of its kind.
Chosen from a national pool of fashion design students and former CFDA scholarship winners, Kieran’s portfolio of jersey-based designs wowed the judging panel of luminaries…, including Harper’s Bazaar Editor-in-Chief Glenda Bailey, designer Prabal Gurung, Stacey Bendet of Alice + Olivia, Gilt Womens GM Jyothi Rao, and Lisa Smilor of the CFDA.
Kieran has produced a debut collection of sexy, stylish and fresh separates available only on Gilt.com! Starting June 8 at noon ET, you can buy pieces from the limited edition line, from T-shirt dresses with an edge to slinky jersey skirts to revealing rompers. Stay tuned for more from Kieran, the judges and the star-studded bash to celebrate the collaboration!
