It’s official. Christopher Bailey (Chief Creative Officer of Burberry) has been honoured with the 2010 CFDA International Award, for his contribution to fashion outside of America. Other honourees include model Iman for the CFDA Fashion Icon Award and the late Alexander McQueen who receives CFDA Board of Directors’ Special Tribute Award.
Other awards up for grabs include Menswear Designer Of The Year, Womenswear Designer of The Year and Accessory Designer of the Year, and I’m hoping nominees Tom Ford, Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler (Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough) win in these respective categories.
Why? Tom Ford (along with Ryan Reynolds) looked smashing at the recent Oscars dressed in Tom Ford.
Alexander Wang may have already won many awards over the years, but since he is up against Marc Jacobs and Donna Karan this year I’ve decided to root for the ‘underdog’ instead. Plus the fact that his bags are more interesting doesn’t hurt either.
Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough for Proenza Schouler which has delivered icon after icon season after season including the PS1, the PS11, that gorgeous portfolio which I still can’t find for sale online (shown above), and those quirky evening bags. Need I say more?
