We’ve still got the CFDA Awards ahead of us, which are basically like the Oscars for fashion. Every year the Council of Fashion Designers of America honors the industry’s heaviest hitters with an award ceremony.
So who is in the running for an award this year? Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are nominated for Accessories Designer of the Year for their line The Row, making this their second nomination.
CFDA President Diane Von Furstenberg made the big announcement last night at the Bowery Hotel in New York City. Other nominees up for the same award as the Olsens are Alexander Wang and Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCullough of Proenza Schouler. We’d say that puts them in pretty good company!
The big event takes place June 2 at Lincoln Center, where the CFDA will also give out several honorary awards. This year the honorees are Tom Ford, Raf Simons, Bethann Hardison and Ruth Finley.
And if Mary-Kate and Ashley do end up beating out the competition and taking home the award, this wouldn’t be their first win. They won the top prize for Best Womenswear Designer of the Year back in 2012.
Nice to see these two are still clearly at the very top of their fashion game!
