CFDA

Since the Council of Fashion Designers of America 2013 Awards are almost here 
I figured I would just write a little bit about them.

They will be held Monday June 3rd. Although, for only the second time it will be digitally broadcasted on Tuesday, June 4th on Style.com's homepage.

I'm pretty excited, again, to watch the awards. 
Hah, honestly they are the only awards I really ever watch fully.

2013 Nominees:

WOMENSWEAR DESIGNER OF THE YEAR
Proenza Schouler
Marc Jacobs
Alexander Wang

 MENSWEAR DESIGNER OF THE YEAR
Thom Browne
Michael Bastian
Duckie Brown

 ACCESSORIES DESIGNER OF THE YEAR
Proenza Schouler
Alexander Wang
Phillip Lim

 SWAROVSKI AWARD FOR WOMENSWEAR
SUNO 
Creatures of the Wind
Cushnie et Ochs

SWAROVSKI AWARD FOR MENSWEAR
Tim Coppens
Todd Snyder
Public School

SWAROVSKI AWARD FOR ACCESSORIES
 Pamela Love
Irene Neuwirth
Jennifer Meyer

I don't have anyone I'm really hoping to win besides SUNO. I remember doing a presentation on them in 2010 on them being an up and coming sustainable high fashion collection. Their collections from their 2009 and 2010 collections have grown significantly and I think they deserve the award.
Fingers crossed for them.
