NEW YORK — Young designers are starting to get a little respect.
Swarovski, the crystal company, is expected to give a cash prize of $10,000 to each of the winners in the two "new designer talent" categories at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Fashion Awards on June 2. In addition, the winners each will receive a $10,000 credit for Swarovski products, plus a trip to Wattens, Austria, to tour the company’s headquarters and museum, a Swarovski spokeswoman said.
