CFDA Fashion Awards 2017

  • Date: June 5, 2017
  • Venue: The Manhattan Center’s Hammerstein Ballroom
  • Size: 5m x 40m (16.5’ x 132’)

Each June, the fashion community honors the best in American design at the CFDA Fashion Awards. Held in the Hammerstein Ballroom on bustling 34th street in the heart of the Garment District, the event draws designers like Vera Wang and Diane von Furstenberg as well as A-list celebrity guests like James Franco and Anna Wintour. Arena Americas installed a 5m x 40m clearspan tent with a parapet façade to host the event’s star-studded red carpet.

This custom-designed parapet façade hid the pitched part of a clearspan tent, and created a sleek box-like entry. It was a bold and eye-catching idea for the Fashion Awards!
