Alexander Wang And Proenza Schouler Lead CFDA 2013 Nominations

This year's CFDA (The Council of Fashion Designers of America, Inc) awards nominations have been announced with Alexander Wang and design duo Proenza Schouler leading the way with two nods each.
 The New York-based designers will fight it out in the Womenswear Designer of the Year and Accessory Designer of the Year categories but face strong competition from Marc Jacobs and Phillip Lim respectively.

Other notable names to make the nominations list include Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci, who has been honoured with the International Award, design legend Oscar de la Renta, the recipient of the Founders Award, and Vera Wang, best known for her bridalwear, who will be presented with the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement prize.

The list also features three awards sponsored by Swarovski for emerging designers – womenswear, menswear and accessories – where recipients will receive financial support for their budding fashion businesses.

The CFDA Awards 2013 winners will be announced at a glitzy ceremony in New York on the 3rd of June.
