ROCK THE VOTE: Oscar nominees aren’t the only ones lobbying for awards this season. With the March 11 deadline for voting for the 2011 CFDA awards closing in, a few designers are making their appeals directly and indirectly. Rebecca Minkoff mailed letters highlighting her design career, celebrity followers and annual sales growth. A Kara Ross team member has made a bid for her employer, as has a Marchesa spokeswoman, who reached out for recognition for Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig via e-mail Wednesday. Winners and honorees will be disclosed at a March 16 CFDA party hosted by Diane von Furstenberg and Nadja Swarovski at the DVF studio. Meanwhile, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin have been tapped to shoot the awards journal this year.
