Well, that is the list of the nominated designers for this years 2015 CFDA Fashion Award. Did your favorite designer make the list? For me it's a win *Michael Kors for womenswear (a little favoritism there). Menswear would have to be Tom Ford, although am also rooting for Rag & Bone.
Let's discuss this, and tell me which designer would you vote for?
