Paul Andrew was crowned with a big win at the 2016 CFDA Awards. The designer was named the winner of the Swarovski Award for Accessory Design on Monday night in New York.
Andrew, who debuted his collection for spring ’13, was up against Aurora James of Brother Vellies and Gigi Burris.
Since the launch, Andrew quickly gained attention from top retailers and the A-list celebrity set. His signature Zenadia pump is spotted on top stars including Brie Larson, Anna Kendrick, Allison Williams and Olivia Wilde.
During an exclusive interview with Footwear News last June, Andrew said, “It feels like I’m going from fledgling designer to someone who is more known. I’m not an established brand by any stretch, but all of the sexy buzz isn’t the same as when I launched. Now, it’s really about the product and sustaining growth. And that’s exciting for me.”
