Fashion designer Phillip Lim was honored at the CFDA 2013 Fashion Awards, and named the 'Accessory Designer of the Year.' This is Lim's second time to be honored by the CFDA; in 2007, he was named an 'Emerging Talent in Womenswear.'

'3.1 Phillip Lim,' his fashion label, is full of clothes and accessories that are interesting and effortlessly elegant. His contemporary clothing and accessories help to refine the women they are worn by, not define them. The contemporary styles are highly coveted for their ease of wear; it is no wonder that he was recognized for his talents as a designer this year.

Some of Lim's most recognizable garments are made with predominantly whites, navy blue and floral prints. His work has been featured in numerous editorials and even fashion-inspired games.
