Honoring a Legend

Our community is still mourning the loss of our friend and colleague, Cindy Edelstein. And though many of us have been looking for words to describe this loss, I have found there aren’t words to truly describe the impact she has made on many of our lives and our industry as a whole. 

From established designers to up and coming talent and from industry organizations to the press, Cindy touched the lives of so many. Her generosity of spirit and genuine passion for everything she did will be an ongoing source of inspiration to us all.

Within our community, we consider it our obligation to keep Cindy’s spirit alive the way we know she would have wanted us to. To that end, we will be paying tribute to Cindy and her family during COUTURE 2016 at our Design Awards ceremony on Saturday night. We hope that you’ll all be there to join us in paying our respects and celebrating this amazing woman.
