Alexander McQueen to Receive CFDA Award in 2010

Fab Flash: CFDA to Honour Alexander McQueen

Lee Alexander McQueen's death earlier this year is still sending ripples of sadness through the fashion world. Yesterday would have been his 41st birthday (check out a fab round up of his Spring pieces here) and the Council Of Fashion Designers Of America used the occasion to announce another tribute.

The British designer's final collection was shown at Paris Fashion Week earlier this month and his will now be awarded with a CFDA's special board of directors honour. It will be presented at the industry's annual gala in New York in June.

More nominees for the awards were announced with Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs and Alexander Wang battling it out for the womenswear gong, whilst Michael Kors will get the lifetime achievement award. Diane von Furstenberg was also voted in for a third term as president of the organisation. British Designer Christopher Bailey will be presented with the international award. For a full list of nominees, just read more.
