Style.com has this year’s list of CFDA nominees and Marc Jacobs, perennial nominee and winner is up for 2 awards. The only other person up for 2 awards? Alexander Wang. That I certainly could have predicted as almost every big model I met this season was either wearing one of his pieces, carrying one of his bags or wearing a pair of his distinctive shoes. The girls see everything, from sportswear to haute couture, and many get clothes for free (as their “pay”); so when they choose to wear/carry something, it really is an excellent barometer of a designer’s fashion relevance. You go Alexander!
