This year’s nominees include household designer names like Alexander Wang and Marc Jacobs (who are both up for Womenswear Designer of the Year), as well as Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen, who are up for Accessories Designer of the Year for their fashion label, The Row.
And we’re only getting started. The night will also be full of A-list presenters, like Lupita Nyong’o, who will present the womenswear award. And James Marsden will present the winner of the menswear category.
