VOGUE presents CFDA | Vogue Fashion Fund 10th Anniversary Special
Catching up: A handful of designers we have grown to love [and are on FashionDailyMag radar] got their jump start thanks to the CFDA | Vogue Fashion Fund. In honor of the 10th Anniversary of the CFDA | Vogue Fashion Fund, a video was created celebrating the 10th anniversary. Mini interviews with designers including Proenza Schouler, Prabal Gurung, Pamela Love, and Marchesa give us a glimpse of their “moment” presenting to Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour.
Alumni and leaders discuss the history and their most memorable moments. Anna Wintour along with Vera Wang, Jenna Lyons, Diane von Furstenberg, Alexander Wang, and designers who have all been a part of the Fashion Fund’s ten-year history share what it’s like- when a collection is first presented to the panel. Check it out the video

About Fashion Fund: The Council of Fashion Designers of America and Vogue magazine have created an endowment to support the next generation of American fashion designers. With monies raised, the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund has been established, the stated purpose of which is to generate sufficient income each year to fund significant financial awards to one or more designers and provide business mentoring. Award recipients are selected by a Committee of industry experts, based on the exceptional talent they have already demonstrated in fashion design and their capacity for future distinction in the fashion industry.
