The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalists Are Revealed

by The Daily Front Row

The results are in! The 10 finalists of The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund have been announced—that is, emerging talents that are selected by a committee of industry elite. This year, four new faces join the judging panel: Joseph Altuzarra, Eva Chen, senior vice president and fashion director at Saks Fifth Avenue Roopal Patel, and director at Vogue Runway Nicole Phelps. Over the next few weeks, the judges will interview each finalist, review their current collections, and visit their design studios. In October, the finalists will jet to L.A. to present a fashion show at the Chateau Marmont, and the winner and runners-up will be announced at a gala dinner in New York on November 6. The prize? Mentorship and $400,000 for the winner, and $150,000 for each of the two-runners. Without further ado, the finalists…
