The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) has promoted CaSandra Diggs to president of the organization.
Diggs joined the CFDA in 2001 and most recently held the position of chief administrative and financial officer. As president, reporting to CFDA CEO Steven Kolb and the Board of Directors, she will be charged with developing strategy and making decisions that further the CFDA’s purpose to champion, educate, and support its membership and the fashion industry-at-large.
“CaSandra is an innovative thinker with a strong understanding of organizational and business operations,” Kolb said. “Expanding her role will provide the CFDA with more opportunity to meet the needs of the membership in a broad and diverse way. It is a critical time for our industry, and she is the right person with the right ideas to help lead CFDA into the future.”
“CFDA remains a vital pillar of the fashion community,” added Diggs. “I am delighted to join Tom Ford and Steven Kolb as we continue to advance and evolve the CFDA into a modern, forward-thinking organization that is reflective of our times.”
