The Row and Altuzarra crowned at the CFDA Fashion Awards
today Jun 6, 2012
It has taken just five years for Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s label The Row to stamp its mark on the contemporary luxury market. The former child stars won the most coveted award – “Womenswear Designer of the Year” – at the CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday night with their globally-distributed label, particularly known for its accessories. The menswear award was presented to Billy Reid, a favourite of the American menswear fashion press.

Frenchman Joseph Altuzarra, whose brand is growing slowly but surely in his home country, took the Swarovski womenswear prize home with him to his New York studio. Swarovski awarded its menswear prize to Phillip Lim, whose second Paris runway outing with his label 3.1 Phillip Lim will take place on 28th June at the Palais de Tokyo. Blogger and illustrator Garance Doré was awarded the Media Award with her boyfriend Scott Schuman (The Sartorialist). It’s the first time that fashion bloggers have been recognised in this way at the event.
