He is well known around Ames, but he is about to become a household name. ISU alumnus and guest designer of the 2012 ISU Fashion Show Todd Snyder has been nominated for a Council of Fashion Designers of America award. Snyder is nominated for the Swarovski Award for menswear. Philip Lim and Antoni Azzulo are also nominated in this category.
“The Swarovski Award recipients in each category will receive generous financial support from Swarovski as well as exposure to the company’s vast and innovative Swarovski crystal resources,” according to the CFDA website.
The CFDA also will celebrate its 50th anniversary this year. The 2012 CFDA Awards will take place June 4 at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York City. Until then, Snyder will be making his way back to the Midwest for this year’s ISU Fashion Show on April 14.
