CFDA Fashion Awards Tap Hasan Minhaj and Jessica Williams as Presenters

Hasan Minhaj and Jessica Williams will be the presenters at the 2019 CFDA Fashion Awards on June 3.
Minhaj and Williams will present the Womenswear, Menswear, Accessory, and Emerging Designer of the Year nominee categories.
Instead of a traditional host format, the CFDA Fashion Awards will showcase several creative voices in the fashion and entertainment industries to spotlight this year’s honorees and nominees.
“Hasan and Jessica both have incredibly popular shows that tap into the current state of culture,” said Steven Kolb, president and chief executive officer of the CFDA. “We’re excited to have them on stage and look forward to celebrating the best of American fashion.”
Minhaj is the host and creator of the weekly comedy show, “Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj” that premiered on Netflix last October. The series, which has won a 2019 Peabody Award, explores the modern cultural and political landscape.
