CFDA Popular Vote

dereklam0931The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and L'Oreal Paris have created a new award called the Popular Vote. This is your chance to vote for your favorite designer of 2009! Let me tell you,'s a hard pick. There are four pages of designers to choose from. Basing my vote on 2009 collections, I chose Derek Lam. He is just doing some amazing things and I would wear everything he has designed for this year. Catherine Malandrino, 3.1 Philip Lim, Lela Rose and Twinkle by Wenlan were up there for me too.

Go vote and tell me your pick!


Designer Spotlight - Lela Rose

I'd say her style is high fashion preppy. She describes it as "classical...with whimsical twists." lelaroseclotheslelaroseclothes2lelaroseclothes3lelaroseclothes4
