CFDA 07′

June 5, 2007

Ralph Lauren became the biggest winner of the night taking home the honour for ‘Menswear Designer of the Year’ and the first-ever ‘American Fashion Legend Award’ which was presented by Oprah Winfrey. The very coveted award for ‘Womenswear Designer of the Year’ was a tie between Oscar De La Renta and Proenza Schouler. What a twist, that left Marc Jacobs empty-handed despite being nominated for two categories.

young asian rising talents to look out for: Jason Wu and Alexander Wang. By the way, did you realize that the fashion design circuit in New York is nuturing more and more asian talents? And they’re mostly males instead of females like the veterans Anna Sui and Vera Wang?

and lastly, how can a fashion event in New York happen without the ‘legendary’ Vogue Editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour (in Proenza Schouler) ?
