2012 CFDA Award Winners

I don’t know about you, but last night I was glued to instagram, checking out designer’s feeds from the CFDA awards and awwing over all of their amazing outfits! Disregarding the Met Ball from the running, the CFDA awards is the Oscars of fashion; so it’s really a red carpet ringer for designers and guests alike to bring it considering they’re entering a room of some of the most creative and iconic minds of the industry… ahhh! One day I’ll make it inside.

The award ceremony was held at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center and hosted by Seth Meyers. The award celebrates the best of American fashion and while it’s an honor to be nominate (no really, it is!), to win is some serious designer credit.

And without further adieu… Envelope please. And the winners are:

Womenswear Designer of the Year Award: Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen for the Row
Menswear Designer of the Year Award: Billy Reid
Accessory Designer of the Year Award: Reed Krakoff
Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent in Womenswear: Joseph Altuzarra
Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent in Menswear: Phillip Lim
Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent in Accessory Design: Tabitha Simmons
The Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award: Tommy Hilfiger
The Media Award, in honor of Eugenia Sheppard: Scott Schuman and Garance Doré
The Fashion Icon Award: Johnny Depp
The Founders Award, given in honor of Eleanor Lambert: Andrew Rosen
The International Award: Rei Kawakubo

For anyone not familiar with the CFDA, they are the Council of Fashion Designers of America, a non-profit trade organization for North-American designers of fashion and fashion accessories. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the CFDA.

Congratulations to all of the winners!
