A MAC x CFDA 'Vogue' Fashion Fund Collab Is Coming, So Here's What To Expect — PHOTOS

Another day, another collaboration — and this is one we definitely haven't seen before. The CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund is partnering with MAC Cosmetics, according to Vogue. CFDA designers will be translating their garment skills to a makeup collection, and I couldn't be more intrigued to see the result.

Though MAC is famous for it's star-studded collaborations (think Lady Gaga and Rihanna), the cosmetic brand has never teamed up with the CVFF before. But all of that is about to change, because starting on Monday, five womenswear designers (Tome, Tanya Taylor, Cushnie et Ochs, Juan Carlos Obando, and Chromat) are going to be creating a six-piece makeup collection that encapsulates their design vision. I wonder how easy it's going to be to go from fabrics to powders and glosses?

After they create their mini collections, a panel of judges will announce a winner early next year, and the collection will be slated to hit stores in 2017. It's definitely a creative and exciting project for a MAC collaboration, and I'm excited to see how each designer's vision is translated into the makeup. Plus, this collaboration is proving that there is no end to the means in which you can express yourself artistically.

But since we still have a while to wait before the line launches, let's get to know the designers competing.


The designers behind NYC-based Tome waited 13 years to launch their label. The result? A more sophisticated design eye and a tasteful maturity. Their line of separates incorporates luxury that upgrades basics.

Tanya Taylor

The Toronto native's designs emphasize feminine shapes and a youthful spirit, as well as color. Her collection is sold at Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Lane Crawford, and ModaOperandi.com.

Cushnie et Ochs

Designers Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs bring bold sensuality and femininity to their understated and modern clothing. They are influenced by the female body and celebrating women through body-contouring silhouettes, use of color, and bold lines.

Juan Carlos Obando

The self-taught designer began his career in advertising before launching his own collection. He's created a capsule collection for J.Crew, dressed celebrities such as Amy Adams and Jessica Alba, and become known for his silk pajama sets and flowy dresses.


Designer Becca McCharen's background in architecture and urban design lends itself to clothing focusing on structural experiments for the human body, including her signature architectural cages.

How excited are you for the collab? I can hardly wait.
