Ahead of New York Fashion Week in September, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) has announced its 10 finalists. Since 2003, CFDA has been helping and mentoring American design talent from the start of their careers through their continued success. This year, the fashion fund is celebrating it’s 15th year and to mark the occasion, the finalists were announced through a digital campaign launched on the CFDA’s social media platforms. They are:
Batsheva Hay, Batsheva Hay
Emily Adams Bode, Bode
Christian Cowan, Christian Cowan
Danielle Corona, Hunting Season
Jonathan Cohen and Sarah Leff, Jonathan Cohen
Raul Lopez, Luar
Matthew Adams Dolan, Matthew Adams Dolan
Kerby Jean-Raymond, Pyer Moss
Rebecca de Ravenel, Rebecca De Ravenel
Scosha Woolridge, Scosha
Although many of the burgeoning designers are just beginning to break into the industry, many have already courted critical and celebrity praise, including Rihanna-favorite Matthew Adams Dolan.
The council’s fashion fund has impacted and bolstered the fashion careers of many influential designers including past winners Proenza Schouler, the recipient of the inaugural fund in 2004, Alexander Wang (2008), Altuzarra (2011), The Elder Statesman (2012), Brock Collection (2016), and, last year, Telfar.
The Fashion Fund Section Committee will meet with each designer and the winners will be announced at a gala dinner featuring a runway of the finalists’ looks. The winner and two runner-ups will be announced at the gala dinner in New York City on November 5. The winner will receive 0,000, while the runners up will take home 0,000 each. All winners will also receive a year of mentorship from CFDA designers and fashion executives.END
