WTF? Justin Timberlake and Olsen Twins Join CFDA?
So, of course, being invited to join the CFDA, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, is the highest honor an American designer can achieve. Oddly enough, William Rast, Justin Timberlake’s clothing line, and The Row, from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, have both been inducted to the council. Is anyone else uber confused? We sorta get the Olsens. After all, their clothing line has been gaining lots of buzz since it first debuted, and the fashion set loves it for being well-made and well-designed, if a little pricey. But William Rast? What’s to love? It’s primarily known for producing denim. We need answers, and we need them now! If not, we’d at least like a CFDA invitation ourselves since it looks like anyone with a needle and thread can join. Sorry, but we had to take it there! [CFDA]
