“This one’s for the girls!” Chloe Gosselin Honored with Footwear News "Emerging Talent” Award
A celebration of the designer, the brand, and all the women who wear it so well.
On December 4th, Chloe Gosselin was honored with the “Vivian Infantino Emerging Talent” Award at the Footwear News Achievement Awards in New York City.
It was a celebration of Chloe Gosselin the designer, the brand, and of the CG woman, the customer that is a constant source of inspiration for Chloe and her team. “Getting this award from Footwear News is a huge reward for all the team at Chloe Gosselin. To be recognized by the whole industry gives us the strength to keep going and creating,” said Chloe.
Honored for her artistry and craftsmanship, Chloe was introduced by fashion icon and fellow champion of women, Diane von Furstenberg. “To be presented by my friend and mentor Diane is a moment I will cherish forever. Fashion is a tough industry, and I couldn’t keep going without the friendship and guidance of people like her”, Chloe explained. Recognized by the designer as a “pusher of creativity”, Chloe knew that this award was not just about her.
“I want to thank all the women out there who are wearing my shoes”, the designer explained. “I know that you’re fierce, full of dreams and ambition, and I’m honored that you’re choosing to walk through life in our creations”.
As the brand continues to grow with the release of its first Resort Collection, pop-up shops in 2019, collaborations (look out for one with Morgan Lane this February) and new retailers, Chloe Gosselin’s mission remains the same: to create something beautiful for strong women, that celebrates their own version of femininity. “Everything we do is dictated by the women who wear our shoes. I know that wherever they come from, we share common grounds.”
