Today in the headlines we’ve covered the nominees and presenters, but the fashion-forward crowd knows the CFDA Awards are much more than that. There are parties, pop-up boutiques, benefits, dinners, and exhibitions. The Twitter-verse is speculating who will take home a coveted CFDA award.
On Tuesday, May 21, CFDA and Swarovski threw a party to benefit Free Arts NYC. They asked each nominee to create an object covered with Swarovski crystals and as expected, the results were stunning. Suno crafted a crystal cactus, Pamela Love created shimmering arrows, and Cushnie et Ochs made some blinged-out knives.
For all the Instagram users out there, the CFDA has launched a contest just for you. Search your closet high and low for anything related to a CFDA member or nominee (that should be easy enough right?) and Instagram the photo with the hashtag #CFDAready. Be creative with your fabulous photos because one lucky winner will be chosen live at the awards on Monday!
You can watch the CFDA Awards hosted by Bravo’s Andy Cohen June 4 on Style.com.
