|This past Monday night the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund dinner gala was held at Skylight Studios with John Galliano as the keynote speaker. Founded by the CFDA and Vogue magazine, the fund was conceived as an “accelerator” of fashion careers.
This year’s Fashion Fund recipient was Alexander Wang which included $200,000 and mentoring. Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhal of Vena Cava and Albertus Q. Swanepoel of Albertus Quartus were the runners-up. Each will receive $50,000 and a business mentor.
|Prizes and mentoring aside, for the rest of us, if nothing else, it’s a trip. Question: are the girls getting taller and the boys getting shorter?|
