THE CFDA 2017 NOMINEES LIST

THE OSCARS OF AMERICAN FASHION



It’s this time of the year in which the CFDA, one of fashion’s leading organizations, announced their nominees for this year’s big event. As we were expecting, Raf Simons received two nominations for his work at Calvin Klein, while two of the most respected emerging designers, Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia, received a nomination for their label Monse. No media award will be presented this year—last year it was awarded to the Business of Fashion’s founder Imran Amed. One of the biggest surprises was Italian editor Franca Sozzani posthumously winning the award for Fashion Icon. No doubt her legacy will remain amongst the industry.
 
The big event will take place on June 5 in New York City and we cannot wait to find out who will be taking home the Oscar of American fashion. See the full list right here:
