The CFDA launches new 'Instagrammer of The Year' award
Social butterflies of the creative world
For the first time ever, the Council of Fashion Designers of America will name a 'Fashion Instagrammer of the Year', to be selected from a group of eight nominees. The chosen ones this year are @donalddrawbertson, @dapperlou, @aguynamedpatrick, @paridust, @troprouge, @amy_stone, @hokaytokay and @bessnyc4.
Voting is open until May 30 via CFDA.com or by 'liking' any images tagged #MyCFDA on Instagram. The winner will then be revealed on CFDA.com, Instagram and Facebook on May 30.
Although the winner won't be getting a Trova onstage at the actual CFDA Awards on June 2, he or she will get to attend the ceremony and take over the group's Instagram account for the entire evening — serving as the ceremony's official Instagram correspondent. Each Instagrammer will also get to go behind the scenes with a fashion award nominee, documenting the unique experience along the way with the hashtag #MyCFDA.
