Spurr’s CFDA Nod Not At Risk-------
Just two days after his CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year award nomination, Simon Spurr exited his label. However, WWD reports that even though Spurr is no longer associated with the brand he co-founded with Judd Nydes in 2006, his CFDA nomination won’t be directly affected. “It’s the individual, not the company, that is nominated,” says CFDA chief executive officer Steven Kolb. “I hope that voters will vote on the body of work.”
At this time, executives at the Simon Spurr label are not commenting on the designer’s departure. Spurr himself is also remaining tight-lipped.
