The verdict is in: Marc Jacobs is the designer of the year — according to the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
Last night, tons of others took home accolades that could be called the “Academy Awards of Fashion: including Michael Kors, Christopher Bailey and the high priestess of hotness, Iman.
Not to gloat or anything, but the School of Fashion isn’t a stranger to the CFDA. Many of our students have received scholarships from the prestigious association (including some of our graduating students this year.)
