CFDA Sends Fashion Award Ballots To Bloggers

The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) has sent nominating ballots for its annual Fashion Award to bloggers, WWD reports. This is the first time that the informal Internet writers have been included in the voting process, with ballots typically going out to CFDA members, editors, retailers and stylists. Tavi of Style Rookie fame and Bryanboy will supposedly weigh in on which designers should win.

The ballots are due on March 12 and special honorees will be named on March 17. The Fashion Awards are scheduled for June 7.
