Another year, another CFDA Awards.
Tonight Diane von Furstenberg and Steven Kolb announced the nominations for 2011's awards. But before she began to read out the names, DvF told the crowd at her packed studio that the organization would be putting together an auction for the victims of the Japan natural disasters. "We're going to put together big packages. Designers, clients, suppliers--everyone is getting involved."
As for the nominees and honorees, there were very few surprises, except for maybe one.
