CFDA Award Nominees: Simon Spurr, Pamela Love… And Johnny Depp?

Christmas has come early for some of New York’s finest designers. The nominees and special honorees for the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards were announced last night at the studio of CFDA president, Diane von Furstenberg.  The annual awards gala will take place on June 4 at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, and this year should be an especially wild party since it marks the CFDA’s 50th anniversary.

In addition to the Fashion Awards, the ceremony will also include the Swarovski Awards for emerging talent and a number of honorary awards including the Geoffrey Been Lifetime Achievement Award and, our personal favorite, the Fashion Icon Award. So without further ado, here’s the ladies and gents who made this year’s cut:

Womenswear Designer of the Year nominees: Marc Jacobs, Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen for The Row and Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez.

Menswear Designer of the Year nominees: Patrik Ervell, Billy Reid and Simon Spurr.
