The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) held its annuals awards, which was hosted by CNN's Anderson Cooper, this past Monday.

The CFDA honored several designers in the fashion industry including Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez for womenswear designer of the year for their line Proenza Schouler . In addition, Alexander Wang won accessory designer of the year, and Michael Bastian for menswear designer.

The well known Swarovski awards, which are given to newcomers who are breaking out in the industry, were given to three different up and coming designers.

Some of the presenters included Naomi Watts, Gerard Butler and Sofia Coppola.

Marc Jacobs was also honored with the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award for his impact on the fashion world.

"The spirit of American fashion was evident at the CFDA Fashion Awards," said Steven Kolb, the executive director of these awards. "Tonight we came together as an industry in support of each other."

The CFDA awards is one of the most prestigious recognition ceremonies. There are approximately 375 members of this council in the fashion industry. Prospective fashion designers will most likely strive for such recognition during their careers in this field.
