The time has come!!!!
CFDA awards are upon us!!!!!!
How many more sentences with exclamations points can I use?!?!
With the CFDA awards on June 2, the list of nominees was finally released. Now what does that actually mean? It means you have 80 days to check out every designer or person on the list below and shop.
In all reality, it means a few more things than just shopping.
You could use this time to research most recent fashion shows, read bios and really see what these designers have worked so hard to accomplish.
Don't we do the same thing when we hear the Oscar Nominees? Don't we run out and go see the movie that helped these actors and actresses create a character great enough to get a best actor, actress or film nod?
Many of the designers have been on this list a number of times but a few new ones crept in. Also, the CFDA's did well in incorporating many of the fashion fund contenders such as Public School, Tim Coppens, Todd Snyder and Marc Alary.
See below for entire list and let me know who you want to win
