Swarovski's been sponsoring the CFDAs for over a decade, and the roster of up-and-coming designers who have won the crystal brand's trio of awards is quite impressive. (Everyone from Zac Posen to Alexander Wang has accepted a Swarovski.) This little diddy is a montage of acceptance speeches over the years, and features everyone from Kate Spade and Rick Owens to Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. Totally worth the two minutes.
And the CFDA Nominees Include...Gaga, Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler and More
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.
