The nominations for this year’s CFDA Awards were recently announced by the CFDA president Diane Von Furstenberg Nadja Swarovski in Manhattan. Here are the nominees for Womenswear Designer, Menswear Designer and Accessory Designer of the year.
Womenswear Designer: Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs and Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez for Proenza Schouler.
Menswear Designer: Steven Cox & Daniel Silver for Duckie Brown, Michael Bastian, and Thom Browne.
Accessory Designer: Phillip Lim for 3.1 Phillip Lim, Alexander Wang, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez for Proenza Schouler.
Some clear standouts are Alexander Wang and Lazaro Hernandez for Proenza Schouler as they are selected in more than one category.
These are my choices for the winners:
Womenswear Designer: Alexander Wang. Wang is now world-renowned for his creations that embody clean lines with a minimal feel. This is the new way to do sports wear.
Menswear Designer: Michael Bastian. Great high fashion with a strong commercial appeal
Accessory Designer: Phillip Lim for 3.1 Phillip Lim. Phillip Lim embodies trends and makes them his own by adding his personal twist.
The award ceremony will be held in the beginning of June in New York City’s famous Lincoln Center. Source: http://www.cfda.com
