Each year, the Council of Fashion Designers of America holds an awards ceremony to honor the best and most creative minds in the industry—the designers who create the most skillful, engaging, and modern pieces in womenswear, menswear, and accessories. And the nominees for this year's awards have just been announced!
No surprise here: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen received nods in both the womenswear and accessories categories for their brand The Row, as did Proenza Schouler designers Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough. Alexander Wang, shoe designer Tabith Simmons, and jewelry designer Irene Neuwirth also received recognition in the accessories category. (Another interesting addition: Instagram will also be receiving an award this year!)
The winners will be announced at a ceremony at New York's Lincoln Center on June 1. Keep scrolling to find out the other designers who were nominated in the women's and men's wear categories!
