The Fashion Crowd Celebrates Altuzarra's Win at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards
As CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winner, you receive not only a nice cash prizeto to further your business, but a mentor to guide your specific needs. That's pretty important stuff — just ask the fund's first winners, and now industry heavyweight, Proenza Schouler how the award has shaped its business. Now, there's a new member to add to the winners' circle; the adorable, and undeniably talented designer, Joseph Altuzarra. He solidified his place in that exclusive club, taking home top honors at last night's eighth annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards — including a $300,000 prize. Sharing in the winnings, Pamela Love of Pamela Love Jewelry and Creatures of the Wind's Shane Gabier and Chris Peters were crowned runners-up and each received $100,000. As for last night's guests, a cool crop of designers, models, and Hollywood fashion fans turned out to fête the talented young designer.
