2011 CFDA Award Nominees & Honorees
Just a short while ago CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg along with Steven Kolb (CFDA executive director), announced the 2011 CFDA Award nominees and honorees! Over at MyFDB headquarters we were excited to hear that some of our favorite designers be mentioned. I was surprised to hear that Marc Jacobs will be honored with a “Lifetime Achievement Award”- even though he hardly seems that old, the forty-seven year-old designer has made quite the name for himself. Also, kudos to Lady Gaga, who will be honored with the “Fashion Icon Award” for her signature style and influence.
See who else is up for an award or being honored:
Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award:
The Media Award
Hilary Alexander, The Telegraph UK
Fashion Icon Award:
The Founders Award: Given in memory of the CFDA’s founder Eleanor Lambert, the Founders Award is given to a person who has made a unique contribution to the world of fashion (and/or deserves the industry’s recognition and does not fall under any existing award categories).
Hal Rubenstein, InStyle
Board of Directors’ Special Tribute: A special tribute by the Board of Directors of the CFDA, given from time to time to acknowledge significant contributions and commitment to fashion.
Congrats to all! We think the nominees and honorees are all quite fabulous!
