Breaking news: The Council of Fashion Designers of America and Vogue have announced the ten finalists for the seventh annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund awards.
The fund was established to help emerging American design talent find continued success in the fashion business, and the winner of the competition (which kicks off at the end of July and culminates in mid-November) is awarded $200,000 and a yearlong mentorship, while the two runners-up receive $50,000.
“Fashion is probably the only industry in the world where its fledgling talents are expected to be as creatively adept at running a business as they are at design,” says Editor in Chief Anna Wintour. “Many, clearly, are not, and it’s through the support of the Fund that these promising designers will be able to build a future for themselves—and for American fashion.”
The Ten Finalists:
ALTUZARRA – Joseph Altuzarra
EDDIE BORGO – Eddie Borgo
CHRISTIAN COTA – Christian Cota
ROBERT GELLER – Robert Geller
PRABAL GURUNG – Prabal Gurung
