The Council of Fashion Designers of America, or the CFDA, is hosting the first Fashion Instagrammer of the Year award.
The eight nominees — selected by CFDA committee members including Rachel Zoe and Proenza Schouler — are @aguynamedpatrick, @amy_stone, @bessnyc4, @dapperlou, @donalddrawbertson, @hokaytokay, @paridust, and @troprouge. The winner will be chosen based on the amount of “likes” from their Instagram photos tagged with the hashtag #MyCFDA.
If you don’t have Instagram, you can still vote for your favourite user on cfda.com through May 30, when the winner will be announced.
Although being chosen as Fashion Instagramer of the Year doesn’t come with an official award at the CFDA ceremonies, the winner is surely in for a star-studded night! The winner will be flown to the event and will document their experience for CFDA through – you guessed it – Instagram. The winner will also get some great bragging rights!
No word yet on how the contest will make sure the nominees don’t purchases “likes” to help increase their odds of winning.
