Gap is debuting a limited edition collection of designs created exclusively for Gap by this year's CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winners – Monique Pean, Patrik Ervell and Sophie Theallet. The collection, designed by some of the most celebrated, emerging designers in the industry, represents the fourth consecutive collection born from Gap's partnership with the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund (CVFF) and will be available exclusively on New York City's 5th Ave. at Gap's rotating concept store.

For the first time, this year's designers – who represent jewelry, menswear and women's design – were encouraged to openly interpret the spectrum of Gap's iconic looks resulting in a collection of flirtatious dresses, skirts and tops for women; modern blazers, t-shirts and button-downs for men; and stunning necklaces and bracelets. Each piece reflects the designers' creative visions while still retaining Gap's classic, yet casual aesthetic. Additionally, this year the designers are producing the clothing, which will be for sale in Gap's rotating concept store.

Gap's partnership with the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund (CVFF), was established to support and encourage new American design talent. In 2007 Gap announced a partnership with the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund to introduce up-and-coming young designers to a broader audience by partnering with winners from the annual Fashion Fund competition. Last year noted designers, Albertus Swanepoel, Alexander Wang, and Vena Cava's Lisa Mayock & Sophie Buhai created a limited edition collection inspired by Gap's classic khakis. In 2007 and 2008, Gap introduced unique designer interpretations of the classic white shirt – an iconic item that has been part of Gap's heritage for more than forty years. Past designers have included 2007 designers Doo-Ri Chung (Doo.Ri), Kate and Laura Mulleavy (Rodarte) and Thakoon Panichgul (Thakoon), and 2008 designers Phillip Lim (3.1 Phillip Lim), Scott Sternberg (Band of Outsiders), Michael Bastian, Philip Crangi and threeASFOUR's Gabi Asfour, Adi Gil & Angela Donhauser.

"We celebrate creativity and inspired design in all forms, which is why we're thrilled to support the work of these talented designers," said Gap's Executive Vice President of Design, Patrick Robinson "I love this partnership because it allows us to raise awareness of emerging design talent while giving our customers access to exciting new designers at an affordable price. Leaving the theme open this year enabled the designers to reinterpret the range of Gap's iconic wardrobe essentials while staying true to their own point of view. The result: three covetable collections."

The collections will be available exclusively at Gap's rotating concept store on New York City's 5th Ave. The concept store is located at 680 Fifth Avenue (between 53rd and 54th Streets) and is open Mondays – Saturdays 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Sundays 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

"The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund designers are the top names to watch. Each has created unique offerings as part of the collaboration with Gap. It is an exciting collection of women's and men's clothing and jewelry. We are appreciative for the Gap's support and help in reaching a new customer base for this talented trio," said CFDA Executive Director Steven Kolb.
