The mastermind behind cult label Phillip Lim is more than just an award-winning
designer--the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) celebrated its
25th anniversary of the CFDA Fashion Awards and the prestigious Swarovski
Award for Emerging Talent in Womenswear went to Phillip Lim--he's also changing
the face of contemporary fashion. From his cheeky tees to his expertly tailored
cocktail frocks, his look is a new kind of modern: strong, sexy, feminine,
but tempered with boyish shapes and menswear touches that are as unexpected
as they are exquisite.
