Monday night at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards many fashion visionaries were recognized and awarded for their innovative designs. Lincoln Center was buzzing as the fashion world combined with Hollywood to celebrate fashion.
Among the many winners were two of our favorite photographers and bloggers who won the Media Award, Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist and Garance Dore of Garance Dore. We absolutely adore their work and praise them for their ability to bring fashion to daily life. And one of the most prestigious honors is the 2012 Womenswear Designers of the Year award. This year the stylish sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, won the award for their collection, The Row. The adored child actresses have now officially made a name for themselves in the fashion world, going up against nominees like Marc Jacobs and Jack McCollough for the win. The award for Best Designer of Accessories went to Reed Krakoff and Billy Reid won for Best Menswear Designer.
The 2012 CFDAs were a night of firsts. Every year a celebrity receives the Fashion Icon Award, except this year, the charismatic winner was not turning any heads. Johnny Depp won the Fashion Icon Award but was not able to make it to the event. Only Depp’s unmistakable, jaw dropping and world renowned fashion style would get people talking without even being at the event!
