So what is the CVFF/CFDA?
CVFF stands for the Vogue Fashion Fund which was founded when the Council of Fashion Designers of America and Vogue came together to support young American designers, providing them with a head-start in the industry- the winner receiving money, invaluable exposure, and a year’s mentorship. The finalists were chosen by a panel of judges including Anna Wintour, Diane von Furstenberg and Joseph Altuzurra- who was also a previous contestant.
The 10 finalists were revealed over the Summer with the winner & two runners-up soon to be revealed on November 5th at a fashion show and gala in New York; As we anticipate the results we can’t help but notice how well these young designers are doing already, with their designs popping up in some of our favourite London stores!
Here they are, our 2018 finalists..
