“After years of trying, the Council of Fashion Designers of America finally has its annual awards show down pat. There were few surprises on Monday night at Lincoln Center, except maybe the number of designers who professed to be surprised that they had won.
“This is surreal,” said Maxwell Osborne, receiving the Swarovski young men’s design award with Dao-Yi Chow for the label Public School. As Erin Beatty and Max Osterweis of Suno accepted the young women’s prize, a stunned Ms. Beatty noted that this was one event when she hadn’t invited family members, thinking a win was unlikely. Maybe they’re bad luck, she joked.
Even the night’s top winners, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler, seemed surprised that they had been named women’s designer of the year, over Marc Jacobs and Alexander Wang. The menswear award went to Thom Browne.” -By CATHY HORYN
