The CFDA just got a little—well, actually, significantly—bigger. Today, the Council of Fashion Designers of America named 32 new members, including Suno’s Erin Beatty and Max Osterweis (above), who won the 2013 Swarovski Award for Womenswear, Jennifer Meyer, Todd Snyder, Creatures of the Wind’s Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters, Lulu Frost’s Lisa Salzer, Illesteva’s Daniel Silberman and Justin Salguero, and more. “Acceptance into the CFDA family is validation of a designer’s talent and it is an opportunity to access the many offerings and programs provided by the organization,” CFDA CEO Steven Kolb told WWD. The council, which hosted its 2013 awards bash last week, is now up to a whopping 454 members.
The CFDA Fashion Awards are set for June 3 (tune in the following morning to watch the exclusive broadcast here, on Style.com), and to introduce the designers nominated for the 2013 Swarovski Awards, the crystal house has created a trio of films. In the weeks leading up to the ceremony, we’ll be debuting the shorts. Above, get better acquainted with the Swarovski Award for Menswear nominees: Tim Coppens, Todd Snyder, and Public School’s Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne.
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
“I grew up on Gap; it’s like the thing you always think about when you think of classic American brands,” says menswear designer Todd Snyder. And now Snyder, along with five other menswear labels (including BLK DNM, Ian Velardi, Mark McNairy New Amsterdam, Ovadia & Sons, and Saturdays Surf), will be stocked in the iconic retailer’s shops. “These designers are shaping the future of menswear, and it’s an honor to bring their distinct visions to life in a way that complements Gap’s casual American point of view,” says Gap North America head of merchandising Mark Breitbard. Before the limited-edition collection (with prices starting at $20 for basics and going up to $340 for leather jackets) launches in stores September 27, Style.com has an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at GQ‘s Best New Menswear Designers and the journey through the collaboration.
The fashion world is getting to know the name Todd Snyder, and he’s working hard to make sure it’s one they won’t forget. The New York-based menswear designer earned a CFDA Swarovski nomination this year, which put him in a category with Phillip Lim and Antonio Azzuolo, and was also tapped as a GQ Best New Menswear Designer pick. In between finishing up his Gap capsule collection (launching in October) and prepping his New York fashion week show, he made a visit to Tokyo to visit his denim factory (and have a little fun, too), and sent back the shots below.
“Checking out the selvage shuttle looms at Kuroki denim mills, the best denim in Japan. It’s the Mercedes of denim and chino. All of our selvage chino comes from there.”
“Tats on my left with Mr. Kuroki to my right—the mills are second-generation family-owned. They are so proud of their factory and product. How cool does Mr. Kuroki look in dark rolled-up denim jeans? He’s 60 years old.” Continue Reading “Todd Snyder’s Postcard From Tokyo” »
