Get Ready for the CFDA Awards with Azeeza Khan

Chicago-based designer Azeeza Khan’s mission is to help others feel confident in their own skin. She does so through Azeeza, her namesake line of vibrant and shapely dresses launched in 2013. “I created this line for those who don’t always want to wear super-tight dresses — like me!” she says. And despite the many voices in the industry who have tried to steer her towards more figure-hugging silhouettes, she’s stood strong with her vision. “From the colors to the fabric and volume of the dresses, they really give people the confidence they need,” she says of her striking cuts. “I always hear that the people who wear my dresses feel beautiful,” she says. “And that’s the most rewarding part.”

Khan also released her first collection with Nike in 2019 as part of an ongoing partnership, and in a few weeks, she’s rolling out a collaboration with Jimmy Choo. But it’s not just closets that Khan is taking over; she launched a homeware collection with CB2, too. Most recently, she attended the CFDA Fashion Awards, which took place at Casa Cipriani in Manhattan, with Project Runway judge Elaine Welteroth by her side as her muse — and she invited us along behind the scenes. 

The annual night, which honors the best in fashion, is not without excitement, and Khan was most looking forward to supporting her fellow Chicago-native fashion trailblazers. This included her old friend and fashion stylist Law Roach who won Best Stylist that night, and a much-anticipated tribute to the late designer Virgil Abloh. “He’s broken so many boundaries in fashion for people of color and for business owners,” she says. “He is one in a million.” As far as her own notable achievements are concerned, Khan shares that her biggest accomplishment thus far is “that my six-year-old daughter actually wants to wear my dresses,” she says. “That’s what matters most to me.”

Below, Khan opens up about getting ready for fashion’s biggest night, her biggest beauty inspirations and her favorite part about getting ready for big events.

“I had to believe I could make something of myself, despite the doubt…”
