When Vogue Has a Tea Party, This Is What the A-Listers Turn Up In
The annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund show was held in Los Angeles yesterday at the Chateau Marmont hotel and hosted by Kate Spade New York’s Deborah Lloyd, Mark Holgate, Lisa Love, and Emma Stone. The event sees 10 emerging designers hand their collections over to the Vogue team to present them to an A-list crowd, including Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Nicole Richie. Following the presentation, the crowd is treated to an L.A.-style tea party to relax and mingle. J.Crew’s Jenna Lyons told Vogue “I think all of the designers are relaxed because they’ve submitted their clothes and someone else is putting them together.”
Supporting emerging talent in the fashion industry is important—it encourages creativity and brings a breath of fresh air to the American fashion industry. Next month, the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist will be announced, and will take home a prize of almost $500,000. Not a bad sum for an emerging designer. Past winners have included Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, and Rodarte, so you can be sure that whoever wins, will become a household name.
