Last night the Council of Fashion Designers of America announced the nominees for the CFDA Fashion Awards, and we couldn’t be more excited to see so many Barneys New York designers among them. This year’s awards hold a special significance, as it’s the 50th anniversary of the CFDA.
We’d like to extend our wholehearted congratulations to these incredible talents. And how better to celebrate, we thought, than by donning our finest garb from this year’s finest designers? After all, these nominees “truly represent the important influence of American design,” according CFDA CEO Steven Kolb.
Below, the Barneys New York designers nominated for a 2012 CFDA Fashion Award.
