The Council of Fashion Designers of America and Vogue magazine host a remarkable initiative each year. The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund provides financial support and an extremely valuable business mentorship for emerging designers.
Previous winners of the Fashion Fund make huge strides in furthering their brand. Just to give you an idea of how huge it is to win, previous winners of this prestigious opportunity have been Joseph Altuzarra, Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler, just to name a few. Sound familiar? I thought so.
This year’s winner of $300,000 and a mentorship with a leader in the fashion industry is Greg Chait of The Elder Statesman. The Elder Statesman is a five-year-old, LA based label and will be sure to be seen everywhere within the next year.
