Mark your calendars — the Council of Fashion Designers of America has confirmed the 2009 CFDA Fashion Awards are scheduled for June 15, and will move to Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, after seven years at the New York Public Library. This confirms a WWD report on March 2.
Comparable to the 2008 awards, when the ceremony was conducted at the library and followed by a dinner at Bryant Park Grill, this year’s awards will be handed out in a ceremony at Alice Tully Hall’s theater space, followed by a dinner in the theater lobby.
According to CFDA executive director Steven Kolb, the move will allow for a larger audience. Swarovski will once again be underwriting the awards. Nomination ballots are due next Wednesday, and the nominees will be unveiled at a March 16 party hosted by Swarovski at Rockefeller Center’s Rooftop Gardens.
