Simon Spurr Still Eligible For CFDA Award

Simon Spurr Still Eligible For CFDA Award Despite Leaving Own Brand

>> Simon Spurr's unexpected departure from his eponymous clothing label hasn't disqualified him from winning this year's CFDA Award for menswear, but it might make it slightly more difficult for him to take it home.

CFDA executive director Steven Kolb told WWD that "it’s the individual, not the company, that is nominated," which means Spurr could still beat out fellow nominees Billy Reid and Patrik Ervell. Spurr left his post as creative director of his company without explanation on Saturday, just two days after being nominated for the award. Kolb noted that Spurr's exit might change the way voters see Spurr, adding that he hopes they "vote on that body of work."

Simon Spurr executives Judd Nyes — who started the company in 2006 — and CFO Jenny Villareal had no comment on the matter, but it's understood that they want to keep the company's doors open without Spurr.
