We’ve been trained to believe that the Olsens do everything together, but there’s a new major exception.
Congratulations to Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne of Public School — as wells as runner-ups Marc Alary of Marc Alary Jewelry and Juan Carlos Obando — who were announced as the winners of the 2013 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund last night at the award’s 10th anniversary ceremony.
We thought raiding Elizabeth Taylor’s archives would be the ultimate way to get our jewel fix, but we’re rethinking it now that we’ve feasted our eyes on the CFDA’s orgasmic collection of gems for its first ever jewelry showcase.
Much like the charge we felt upon learning that a TV documentary would unveil never-before-heard tittle-tattle about Kate Moss, the premise of the enigmatic Anna Wintour appearing on a reality TV show has us feverish with excitement.
Our royal gal is at it again.
It’s not like the Vogue brass haven’t gotten behind the auction site before, but if you weren’t lucky enough to snap up any of the CFDA/Vogue You Can’t Fake Fashion totes that went on sale last month, this might be your next chance at the magazine’s wares.
When it comes to stopping counterfeit goods, the CFDA and eBay’s You Can’t Fake Fashion campaign is no joke. Since 2011, the CFDA and eBay have been selling one-of-a-kind bags to benefit the CFDA Foundation, which aims to fight fakes, and in turn, support authentic wares. This year marks the initiative’s first ever auction, and the collection features custom canvas styles from 90 designers, including Diane von Furstenberg, Ralph Lauren, Anna Sui, and more. Of course, we’ve got a preview of every single one right here.
On June 3, the New York fashion industry will fête its brightest stars at this year’s annual CFDA Fashion Awards and, for the 12th time, Swarovski will present three awards to designers whose stars are on the rise. Here is this year’s incoming class of nominees.
Young designers in the fashion industry may not always have it so easy, as Peter Som told us last night, but the 10 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists are getting a big boost with the help of Nordstrom.
Congrats are in order for CEO of the CFDA Steven Kolb, who married freelancer producer Jay Inkpen yesterday!
What are the holidays for if not to bring people together? And who better to facilitate all this togetherness than the collaboration kings over at Target? That was precisely the spirit last night at the launch party for the retailer’s major holiday collection with Neiman Marcus and the CFDA.
Just when we thought that we were done with shopping for a few weeks, the commercial for the massive CFDA x Target x Neiman Marcus collaboration comes out. And of course, it’s great.
For the past nine years, the CFDA and Vogue have teamed up to award a promising young designer with $300,000 towards their line and a mentorship with a top industry figure. Past winners include Joseph Altuzarra, Alexander Wang, and Sophie Theallet, and this year, as always, competition was fierce. So, who’s the up-and-comer who took home the grand prize?
Collab-happy Target teamed up with the CFDA and Neiman Marcus on a major holiday collection, and we’ve got the full look book with prices! You’re welcome.
New York Fashion Week starts in about two weeks, and that means editors, models, bloggers, and fashion-y celebs will descend upon the Big Apple for a weeklong marathon of runway shows and swanky parties. It also means that the industry needs a refresher on keeping models happy and healthy.
When it was announced that the CFDA, Target, and Neiman Marcus were teaming up for a major holiday collaboration, we knew the collection was going to be a big deal.
Peep some of the designs and drawings from UK fashion illustrator Hayden Wiliams, who is apparently Rihanna’s “boo.”
Last week we found out that Target and Neiman Marcus are collaborating with CFDA designers on a 50-piece holiday capsule collection, and now we have a behind-the-scenes video that has everything you need to know about it!
The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Initiative, an organization dedicated to aiding up-and-coming American designers on the path to realizing their dreams, announced the finalists in its annual Fashion Fund Competition today.
