The 2009 CFDA Journal showcases the work of the nominees for this year’s CFDA Awards. But instead of using models, photographer Craig McDean and stylist Karl Templer decided to have the designers pose wearing their own stuff. So, Swarovski womenswear award nominee Jason Wu wears a dress over his suit. International Award recipient and Louis Vuitton designer Marc Jacobs wore his Vuitton bunny ears. And Alex Wang?
Wang is nominated for a Swarovski womenswear design award. Rodarte sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy were nominated for womenswear. We’ll share images of the rest of the nominees (including Proenza Schouler designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez) as soon as we get our hands on them.
