Last night in New York the 2014 CFDA nominees were announced, with a strong line up of fashion's heavy weights. Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs and Joseph Altuzarra are all in with a chance of scooping Womenswear Designer of the Year, while Thom Browne, Rag & Bone and Public School are up for Menswear Designer.
Mary Kate and Ashley picked up the Womenswear Designer of the Year award back in 2012 for The Row, and they are nominated once again in the Accessory Designer of the Year category. The Row is known for its superbly crafted backpacks, so it's likely the Olsens will be winners again. Fingers crossed for another MK and A acceptance speech!
In other news Tom Ford was awarded the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award and Raf Simons was awarded the International Award. It is custom for designers to bring along their muses to the CFDAs, so who will Raf bring as his date? We have our fingers crossed Jennifer Lawrence will present the award.
