After four years at the helm of Coach, Stuart Vevers was named the 2017 Accessory Designer of the Year at this year's Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Fashion Awards.

The British-born Vevers is a key player in the accessories industry, having taken on lead design roles at Bottega Veneta, Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, Mulberry, and Loewe. Since joining Coach in 2013 as Executive Creative Director, he has radically transformed and reimagined the 75-year-old American heritage label for the 21st century. Some of his triumphs include introducing the Coach 1941 ready-to-wear collection, high-profile tie-ups with the likes of Selena Gomez, and bringing Coach's leather goods to the forefront of the fashion zeitgeist. 

The CFDA Fashion Awards is an annual affair that recognises the outstanding contributions made to American fashion in womenswear, menswear, and accessories. Held earlier this week at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, this year's award winners also include Womenswear Designer of the Year and Menswear Designer of the Year Raf Simons for Calvin Klein and Monse duo Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia, who walked away with the Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent.
