>> Jason Wu, Mary Katrantzou Among 2010 Swiss Textile Nominees —American designers have won the 100,000 euro (approx. $130,000) Swiss Textile Award for the past two years running — Rodarte took home the award in 2008 and Alexander Wang won last year; could Jason Wu continue the monopoly? He, along with Mary Katrantzou, Damir Doma, Juun J, Adam Kimmel, and Duro Olowu, is a 2010 finalist for the award. The winner, determined by a judge panel which this year includes Harper's Bazaar's Glenda Bailey; the Financial Times's Vanessa Friedman, and Luisa Via Roma's Silvano Vangi, will be announced Nov. 4.
