So, you’re in a bar somewhere — anywhere — and you spy a beautiful, fashionable woman that you’d very much like to talk to. You need a line, a good one, to get the conversation started. Things like “Hey, don’t I know you from somewhere” and “What does this feel like? Boyfriend material” pop into your head, but those are played out, if they were ever anything but terrible.

Why don’t you walk up to her and offer your prediction on who’s going to win the CFDA Accessories Designer of the Year for 2014? Well, you can’t if you don’t know who the nominees are. And you won’t know who the nominees are unless you take a look at the whole list of them below.

Also, you should probably know what CFDA stands for, it’s The Council of Fashion Designers of America FYI. Good luck.
