The CFDA and Swarovski partnered to reveal the 2013 CFDA Award nominations tonight at an event hosted by CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg and Nadja Swarovski. The nominees for the June 3 event are below, and like last year, the awards will be broadcast on Style.com the day following the event. Congratulations to all the nominees and honorees—with an especial nod to our very own Tim Blanks, winner of this year’s Eugenia Sheppard Media Award. If we do say so ourselves, well deserved.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS’ TRIBUTE AWARD
The Swarovski Collective—the crystal house’s initiative to help promising young designers and established names—was started in 1999, after Isabella Blow introduced the Swarovski family to Alexander McQueen. “We saw then the magic that resulted from putting our crystals in the hands of cutting-edge talent, how they push the creative boundaries and limits of creative craftsmanship,” says Nadja Swarovski, the initiative’s founder, who notes that collaborating with young designers has been the “cornerstone” of the project from day one. “The fashion industry is fiercely competitive, and it’s incredibly hard for young designers to fulfill their creative potential season after season,” she adds. Indeed, Swarovski has done its part—the initiative has helped over 150 talents since it launched. This season, fourteen brands—Mary Katrantzou, Creatures of the Wind, Suno, and Eudon Choi among them—have been supported by Swarovski and its stones. And to further celebrate the designers’ creative processes, Swarovski has made behind-the-scenes films that follow every label on its journey down the Fall ’13 runway. Style.com will be giving you exclusive looks at two of Swarovski’s films from each of the four fashion weeks. The series kicks off with Creatures of the Wind, above.
Spare a few minutes for us at 6:30 p.m. EST tomorrow—that’s when CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg (left, with the CFDA executive director Steven Kolb and Nadja Swarovski) will be announcing the nominees for this year’s CFDA Awards. (Swarovski is underwriting the festivities.) That goes down at a small get-together at DVF’s Meatpacking District studio, but you don’t need an invite to hear the names in real-time: We’ll be live-streaming the proceedings exclusively here on Style.com. To check it out, tune in to Style.com/live tomorrow night.
