Last night the CFDA Awards, the Oscars of the fashion world, took place and in New York at Alice Tully Hall and the winners are in. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen took away the big womenswear designer of the year award for The Row, Joseph Altuzarra won the Swarovski Award for womenswear and Phillip Lim for menswear and Tommy Hilfiger was awarded the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award.
Simon Spurr didn't end up winning the menswear designer of the year award, which was just as well considering all of the controversy surrounding his departure from his namesake line.
Getting the freshest designer labels at a 20-percent discount, plus enjoying a live DJ while eating cakes and crossing our fingers we win free gifts? Count us in to Oxygen's holiday party on 10 December. The highly buzzed-about London boutique (located at 38 Eastcastle Street, W1) is hosting a customer-appreciation night, and we can't wait to check out the best American labels shipped across the pond.
Oxygen, which just opened in March 2009, will feature labels including Herve Leger, House of Harlow, Alice + Olivia and Eugenia Kim - and on top of that, it'll be an exclusive London stockist of Brian Reyes, Doo.Ri and Under.Ligne by Doo.Ri. The boutique's door-prize competition lasts from 6 to 9 p.m., so bring your lucky penny and just a bit of cash to see if Thursday will be your special day.
Affordable fashion chain Target couldn't really offer us any more in the way of designer collaborations, but forever providing us with designer pieces at a snippet of the usual price tag, this summer will see Cynthia Vincent and Eugenia Kim producing ranges for the store. Look forward to a summer filled with flamboyant hats from milliner Eugenia Kim, whose designs have been worn by the likes of Nicole Richie and Ashlee Simpson, and a range of heel heights, including cute signature flats from Cynthia Vincent.
The Eugenia Kim range for Target is set to launch 18 April, followed shortly by Cynthia Vincent's offering, so lthough it may be four months to wait, the ever-so-thoughtful Target are giving us time to save up. After all, we can never have too many shoes... or hats, for that matter.
