The blogger behind Business of Fashion was honoured at the ‘Oscars of Fashion,’ the CFDAs, this week.
On a Monday in May, swathed in white tie, Imran Amed strode into Tory Burch’s 10-room, to-die-for apartment at the Pierre Hotel in New York City. Kisses were volleyed. Admirations exchanged.
It was the night of the Met Gala — the Kentucky Derby of fashion — and everyone who had been invited to sit at Burch’s table was summoned first to the designer’s home for pre-party tipples. Later, zipping over to the big event — where the gang included everyone from Beyoncé and Jay Z to George and Amal, and Anna Wintour was by to preside — Amed squeezed between two ingenues, Freida Pinto and Emma Roberts.
“It felt a bit like the prom,” he confesses.
This week, his haute monde goes on. Amed — a boy raised in Alberta, in a town best known for its annual Stampede — was honoured at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards (sometimes called the “Oscars of Fashion”) in Manhattan on Monday.
