It's the last week of term one for all us Melbournians! For some reason, my school is throwing all this shit at us to finish. Projects, assignments, tests, quizzes and just plain annoying homework so I've been busyyy.
Anyways, the CDFA Award Nominees' list came out a few days ago (yes, to all you fashion followers, this is old news...but still)
I'm really happy that Alexander Wang is nominated for womenswear designer of the year! I love the masculinity to his pieces (but still remaining feminine, of course) and the urban freshness. I love that David Neville and Marcus Wainwright have been nominated for menswear designer of the year, though I don't really look at menswear, I do love the womenswear line of Rag & Bone.
As for the honorees, congratulations to Christopher Bailey! I think he's done great things for Burberry in terms of, well, everything. He definitely deserved the award, in my opinion. And, of course, the special tribute award went to Alexander McQueen who is greatly missed by us all.
Anyways, that was me commentating a bit on this years honorees and nominees! I know, I didn't talk about every honoree and nominee and I don't want to be disrespectful to the rest of the deserving honorees and nominees so here's the complete list:
