Olsen Twins and The Row get the CFDA Nomination….and We Like It!

17 Mar

I’ve already lauded The Olsen Twins for their incredible endeavors for bringing manufacturing back to the U.S as they work with NYC’s garment district and have gone to Washington D.C. to lobby.  Now they are being nominated for the most prestigious award in the Fashion Industry and that is the coveted CFDA Award.  They are deserving of it as they are their own entrepreneurial force to be reckoned with whose aesthetics and business ethics remain  unchallenged by others.  Though they are not complete saints, but are no Alexander Wang or Nike in the sense of where they make their garments and how they treat their employees.  Their attention to quality is sterling with The Row’s collections.  The Row made almost entirely in the U.S.A. has minimal detailing that is specific to the body and emphasizing the luxury of fabrics and lines.  They have brought back an almost 90’s minimalism that designed by Calvin Klein, Tom Ford, Jil Sander and the radical Helmut Lang where the quality of fabric, construction and laser like attention to line as a detail made these garments so amazing.  This will certainly push them into a bigger arena of fashion attention as I’ve watched them evolve over the last 4 years.  Hopefully I will make that huge plunge and invest in their incredible cashmere coats!
