The fashion designer nominations are out for the highly anticipated CFDA awards, which are only days away, and the 2014 CFDA Journal showcases the lucky few in a series of serious and somber portraits. Shot entirely in black and white, the photo series captures the powerful drive and ambition each of these individuals have to reach such heights of success.
The 2014 CFDA Journal was shot by photographer Willy Vanderperre with creative direction by Trey Laird. Featuring some of the biggest names in the fashion industry including Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, Alexander Wang and the masterminds behind the Rag & Bone brand, stylist Olivier Rizzo had the jitter-worthy job of outfitting each and every one of them for the photoshoot. The cover of the journal was designed by Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic.
