From ACL:Nominees (minus S+H):Any Geller fans out there?
Geller:Last night GQ held its second annual Best New Menswear Designer in America event at Rockefeller Plaza. The party was in honor of the six finalists — Rogues Gallery, Shipley & Halmos, Benjamin Bixby, Save Khaki, Robert Geller and Yigal AzrouÃ«l. As expected, the event was an assembly of the who’s who in the menswear business and much like last year, the collections were beautifully showcased in that oh-so-GQ aesthetic. After the presentation event, the selection committee (which consisted of “a panel of industry experts” — Thom Browne, American menswear designer; Steve Evans, the Levi’s brand VP of merchandising; Kevin Harter, Bloomingdale’s VP of fashion direction; Steven Kolb, CFDA executive director; Jim Moore, GQ creative director; and Jim Nelson, GQ editor-in-chief) worked to select Robert Geller as the 2009 winner.
