Look from the Row Fall 2012
This year is the 50th anniversary for the CFDA and they have just released their nominees this week for the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards (ie the Oscars of American fashion design). I'm excited to say that MKA Olsen's line, The Row, is a contender for the top prize, Womenswear designer of the year. They are up against Proenza Schouler and March Jacobs. Johnny Depp is getting the style icon award, and here are the rest of the nominees:

  • Menswear: Billy Reid, Patrik Ervell and Simon Spurr
  • Accessories:Alexander Wang, Reed Krakoff and Proenxa Schouler (my pick!)
  • Lifetime achievement award: Tommy Hilfiger (preppers rejoice!)
  • Swarovski Award for emerging talent in womenswear: Chris Peters and Shane Gabier for Creatures of the Wind, Joseph Altuzarra, and Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty for Suno
  • Emerging talent in menswear: Antonio Azzuolo, Phillip Lim and Todd Snyder
  • Emerging talent in accessories: Irene Neuwirth, Pamela Love and Tabitha Simmons (my pick)
  • Media award: Scott Schuman and Garance Dore (love this!)
  • Founders award: Andrew Rosen
  • International award: Rei Kawakubo for Comme des Garcons (much deserved)

The ceremony will be held on June 4 2012 in NYC.
