The 2014 CFDA Awards Nominations Are Out: Who Will Win?

The 2014 CFDA Awards nominations were revealed last night at a party filled with the who's who of American fashion (yes, that was Michael Kors over there and Carolina Herrera we passed on the stairs). After it was announced that legendary director John Waters would host the event on 2 June, CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg announced the honourees at this year's ceremony. Raf Simons will receive the international award, while Tom Ford will be the recipient of the Geoffrey Beene lifetime achievement award.

And then there are the nominees! Alexander Wang turned up as a nominee for both womenswear designer of the year and accessories designer of the year, while Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were nominated again for their accessories work on The Row. Proenza Schouler rounds out that category. And for the Swarovski awards for rising talent, the designers ranged from Jennifer Fisher to Creatures of the Wind to Tim Coppens.
