And The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalists Are...

The Council of Fashion Designers (yes, that's what CFDA stands for) of America/Vogue Fashion Fund are celebrating their 10th anniversary this year, and that's worth a toast. The fund gives up-and-coming designers the chance to win mentoring from industry professionals, as well as $300,000 for the winner and $100,000 to the two runners-up. They also get a collaboration collection with J.Crew. You know. No big deal.
