In the womenswear category, the nominated designers are all past winners. They are: Joseph Altuzarra for Altuzarra, Marc Jacobs, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez for Proenza Schouler, Kate Mulleavy and Laura Mulleavy for Rodarte, and Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen for The Row.

In menswear, the nominated designers are Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne for Public School, Marcus Wainwright and David Neville for Rag & Bone, Tim Coppens, Thom Browne and Todd Snyder.

The ceremony will take place June 6 in New York. Designer Norma Kamali will be given a lifetime achievement award, and Donna Karan will receive a Founder's Award.

But what is likely the most anticipated moment of the night will feature an as yet unnamed guest. The Fashion Icon award -- which has recently gone to Pharrell Williams and to Rihanna -- has not yet been announced.
