CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) announced the nominees and honorees for 2010 last week. The three women’s wear designers-Alexander Wang, Donna Karan, and Marc Jacobs are all very strong contenders in their own right. Donna Karan of course is an established name that’s been around for 25 years. Wang is just a baby in comparison, his second full ready-to-wear show was in February 2007. Proving his major street cred with both the industry and consumers alike, he’s also nominated for Accessory Design. As for Marc, he is without a doubt one of the most influential designers of the past decade, designing collections for himself as well as French power house Louis Vuitton.
So who’s it going to be? The newbie, the oldie, or someone so influential he transcends even his own line and designs for another more highly esteemed?
