AWARDS FETE: After a month of travel for shows, Tuesday night’s 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards announcement party felt like a much-needed family reunion on home turf — the notion underscored by the stellar turnout at Manhattan’s Bowery Hotel. Many of the nominees and honorees showed up, including Rag & Bone’s Marcus Wainwright, Marc Alary, Tim Coppens, Public School’s Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, Irene Neuwirth, Rosie Assoulin and Creatures of the Wind’s Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters, as well as Paul Cavaco, Bethann Hardison and the Fashion Calendar’s Ruth Finley.“For many designers of a certain generation, she was the first phone call to make,” CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg said of Finley.

“Everyone things it ends with the Oscars but we in fashion are here to prolong the awards season,” quipped Michael Kors, who, along with Anna Wintour, Carolina Herrera and several other designers, came out to toast this year’s awards crop.
