Highlight: Marc Jacobs Wins CFDA Lifetime Achievement Award

June 9, 2011

In case you missed it, the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) hosted its annual CFDA Fashion Awards Monday night.  Among the winners were Jack McCollough  and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler for Womenswear Designers of the Year, Alexander Wang for Accessory Designer of the Year, Prabal Gurung for Swarovski Award for Womenswear, and many more.

One of the highlights of the evening was the awarding of the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award to Marc Jacobs.  While we think ‘lifetime’ may be a bit of a stretch (he’s only 48), his incredible design spans nearly 3 decades and includes work for Perry Ellis, Louis Vuitton, his own label Marc Jacobs and his fusion label Marc by Marc Jacobs.  His work speaks for itself and fully merits the award.  Watch the presentation below:
