Don't claim to know 13-year-old Tavi Gevinson until you've walked a mile in her fashionable pumps.
The ballots went out earlier this month to a slew of the usual suspects (editors, stylists, retailers) as well as a hand-picked roster of bloggers -- Tavi and Bryanboy apparently among them. Now, the CFDA Fashion Awards have become the singular moment on the American fashion community's calendar -- Alexander Wang won the Swarovski award last year, while Rodarte was singled out for womenswear, joining the ranks of previous winners like Oscar de la Renta and Proenza Schouler.
Considering high-level editors have already been involved in the nomination process, it makes sense that high-profile bloggers should be added to the mix. Regardless, we await the big reveal of the nominees come March 17 with great anticipation.
