Actors have Oscars, singers vie for Grammys, and every fashion designer longs for a CFDA. The nominations for this year’s Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards have been announced with Alexander Wang—who has won several CFDAs in the past—as a front runner with two nominations in accessory design and womenswear. Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough of Proenza Schouler join Wang in both categories. Vera Wang will be taking home the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award, because what girl doesn’t dream of walking down the aisle in a Vera Wang gown? The awards will take place June 3rd at the Lincoln Centre.
