Alexander Wang as a CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winner

It's that time of year again! The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund committee has announced their 2010 list of finalists. The fashion fund, now in its seventh year, was created by the CFDA and
Vogue magazine to help promote emerging design talents with a combination of
a cash prize and a mentorship program by industry leaders. Previous
winners include: Sophie Theallet, Alexander Wang, Rogan Gregory of Rogan,
Doo-Ri Chung, Trovata and Proenza Schouler’s Lazaro Hernandez and Jack
. The winner receives an award of $200,000, and the two
runners-up take home as much as $50,000 each

So now the drum roll, please! This year's CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists are: Joseph Altuzarra of Altuzarra, Christian Cota, Prabal Gurung, Robert
Geller, Eddie Borgo, Oliver Helden and Paul Marlow of Loden Dager,
Pamela Love of Pamela Love Jewelry, Moss Lipow, Gregory Parkinson and
Billy Reid.
Congratulations to them all! But despite the selection, their work is far from over. The fund’s Selection Committee will meet this month with each of the 10
finalists and discuss their most recent collections. Committee members
will also visit the finalists’ studios where each finalist is being asked to
participate in a design project underwritten by Ann Taylor. They will also be a part of a fashion show
underwritten by Frédéric Fekkai on Oct. 19 at the Chateau Marmont in
Los Angeles
. The 2010 winner and runners-up will be named on Nov. 15 at a gala underwritten by eBay.

“This year’s 10 finalists show a depth of creativity and talent that is
inspiring to the industry as a whole,” said Steven Kolb, executive
director of the Council of Fashion Designers of America. “The
designers’ compelling portfolios clearly demonstrate that the future of
American fashion is expansive and bright.” Good luck to all of this year's finalists!
