The CFDA also announced that Seth Meyers will be the host of the upcoming awards. He previously presented the awards in 2012 when he wore a lace Comme des Garcons dress that Marc Jacobs had worn to the MET gala just weeks before. The awards will take place Monday June 5th at The Manhattan Center’s Hammerstein Ballroom. Take a look here for a list of the nominees.
The EU flag is having a moment. Vêtements, Eurotic, and Agi and Sims all emblazoned the flag across pieces for their fall collections and it has been embraced by bloggers and millennials alike. Lea Colombo and Valter Torsleff stated that the brand Eurotic is a direction reaction to Brexit and the implications it has on the European economy and culture. Take a look at their unofficial EU tourist site here. The trend has been compared to the use of the American Flag at New York Fashion Week earlier this year.
