Today is a huge day in the fashion world. Tonight is the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards, and this year marks the 50th Anniversary of the CFDA. If you don’t follow the insider scoop on the industry, you might not know about the CFDA, but they are an integral part of American fashion. The Council of Fashion Designers of America, Inc. (CFDA) is a not-for-profit trade association whose invitation-only membership consists of more than 400 of America’s foremost womenswear, menswear, jewelry and accessory designers. The Fashion Awards show the CFDA hosts is majorly important to the designers of America, and for the first time in its history, this year’s show will be digitally broadcast on Tuesday, June 5th, on Style.com.
Many of tonight’s nominated brands are carried by one of our favorite online shopping destinations, Net-A-Porter.com. We want to congratulate all of the nominees for their outstanding work and what better way to showcase their work than a custom CFDA nominee page with my favorite picks on Net-A-Porter.
Nominees carried at Net-A-Porter.com this year include The Row, Proenza Schouler, and Marc Jacobs for Womenswear Designer of the Year Award while Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, and Reed Krakoff are up for Accessory Designer of the Year and Pamela Love is nominated for the Swarovski Award for Accessory Design.
Of course I picked my favorite bags, but there is so much more to each designer and I pulled the best items on our exclusive Net-A-Porter page.
