Jul '13
On July 10, the ten 2013 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund (CVFF) finalists were announced at the Rag & Bone studio.

Former Fashion Fund finalists Marcus Wainwright and David Neville, managing partners of Rag & Bone, the newest additions to the selection committee, welcomed guests and announced the new group of designers.

In the next few weeks, the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Selection Committee will meet with each Finalist to review their current collections and to conduct in-depth interviews. Subsequently, Committee members will make site visits to the design studio of each Finalist.

As part of the judging process, this year’s Finalists will be asked to participate in a special design project underwritten by Uniqlo. The designers’ one-of-a-kind looks will be unveiled in October. Additionally, a fashion show featuring several looks by each Finalist, will take place at Chateau Marmont in Los Angles in October.

The winner(s) will be announced in New York City on November 11 at a gala dinner.

“I could go on and on about the considerable achievements that the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund has made in its decade long existence. But to my mind simply mentioning the likes of such previous winners as Proenza Schouler, Alexander Wang, Rodarte, and Joseph Altuzarra more than demonstrates just how much the fund has brought to American fashion. This year’s ten finalists are going to be following in some pretty illustrious footsteps” says Anna Wintour, Editor in Chief, Vogue.

CFDA Chief Executive Officer Steven Kolb says, “The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund has cultivated a generation of renowned American designers whose creative talent is known around the world. Now in its 10th anniversary, the program continues to offer specialized mentoring and business grants that are integral to fostering the next wave of successful design talent.”

The CVFF program provides financial support and business mentorship for emerging designers and is generously sponsored by partner J.CREW, as well as underwriters American Express, Appleman Foundation, Carolina Herrera, Coach Foundation, kate spade new york, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom,, The Limited, The Ralph Bartel Foundation , Theory, Tiffany & Co., Tommy Hilfiger, and Vogue. In addition, for 2013 the fund has added three new underwriters: Lane Bryant, Sycamore Partners, and Uniqlo.
