The CFDA (that's the Council of Fashion Designers of America, kids) Fashion Award nominees were announced last night!
Womenswear designer of the year:
Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein
Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez for Proenza Schouler
My vote: The Proenza boys, derr. I'd be happy if Costa took it, though. If Jacobs wins - I'll be pissed. He's been annoying me lately.
Menswear designer of the year:
My vote: Tom Ford's the babe, obviously, but I think I'd like to see Mr. Browne take it, even if all his models looked like zombies in his fall show.
Accessory designer of the year:
My vote: Wait, are we serious with these? Seriously? No comment.
Swarovski Award for Womenswear:
Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte
My vote: The Mulleavy sisters, definitely. They're blowing up, sure, but their hype is way more than deserved (sorry, Alexander).
Swarovski Award for Menswear:
Scott Sternberg of Band of Outsiders
My vote: I won't pretend to know much about menswear, so I'm totally unqualified to vote here. But I do love Band of Outsiders, so let's say Scott Sternberg.
Swarovski Award for Accessory Design:
Justin Giunta for Subversive Jewelry
My vote: Gryson! Woohoo!
