CFDA: the class of 2010

Sometimes, as D:Ream once sang, things can only get better, and for 25 top American fashion designers that sentiment rings particularly true this morning – the CFDA has unveiled the newest names to be added to its exclusive roster this year.

25 names, to be precise, spanning the realms of clothing, jewellery, footwear and accessories will join the Council of Fashion Designers of America in October, making them a part of one of the most prestigious fashion clubs in the US.

“The class of 2010 is a talented mix of creativity,” CFDA executive director Steven Kolb told the Daily. “We are pleased to welcome the designers in to the CFDA family.”

Among those joining the board this year are Rebecca Minkoff, L’Wren Scott, Calvin Klein’s Ulrich Grimm, BCBGMAXAZRIA’s Lubov Azria and CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winner Sophie Theallet, all of whom will be officially welcomed later in the year at a stylish soiree hosted by Vera Wang – at her house, no less.

We suppose congratulations are in order…
