Congratulations to all the winners of the CFDA Awards 2007. Save for one (Derek Lam for Accessory Designer of the Year) I predicted correctly all five winners. I think my accurate predictions are a direct reflection of these designers' activeness within the industry and of their strong contribution to fashion within the past year. Whether it be press, line extensions, premium retail floor space or fashion shows and trunk shows, I think all these designers have really stood out and made a statement (and are still in the process of making a statement). Congrats once again to all as it is quite exciting, both, for an acclaimed designer such as Oscar and an up-and-comer such as Jessie Randall.
