Rag_Bone_CFDA

(David Neville and Marcus Wainwright)

The 2010 Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards have come and gone. This year they were held at Lincoln Center which will also be the new home of New York Fashion Week this upcoming season. The CFDA awards is one of the biggest nights in fashion with everyone who's anyone in the industry attending. So it pleases me to send a heartfelt congratulations to David Neville and Marcus Wainwright of Rag & Bone for winning Menswear Designer of the Year 2010.

Rag & Bone was launched in 2002 as a jeans label but expanded into a sportwear line that successfully combined British sensibilities with New York streetstyle. This year, however, in homage to their roots, they will be launching Rag & Bone/JEAN collection which I was able to see first hand in their Meatpacking District showroom. I'm looking forward to seeing what the brand has in store for the future. In the meantime look for them in stores.
