The Council of Fashion Designers of America is a great organization – not only does it nurture young American design talent through grants and other programs, but it unites the American fashion industry behind the cause of fabulousness. Every year, the CFDA comes together to honor the creme de la creme américain, and it reserves one CFDA Award in particular for excellence in accessories. The group announced the 2012 nominees on Wednesday night, and you might recognize their work above. If not, we’ll fill you in after the jump and you can vote in our poll on who should win the prize!
