Sophie Theallet On What She Plans to Do With Her Newfound CFDA/Vogue-Granted Funds

>> Sophie Theallet, who took home the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund prize of $200,000 last month, sat down with Cathy Horyn to discuss what she plans to do with those new funds.

Her experience designing knitwear for Jean Paul Gaultier and assisting Azzedine Alaia has spurred her: “I want to do some knits.”  She also wants to set up a showroom during the upcoming Paris Fashion Week to meet with international buyers.  Theallet isn't, however, looking to expand her line significantly or move into a larger workspace (she currently works out of the living room of her Brooklyn apartment).

As for the year-long mentorship she's awarded as part of her win, Theallet wants to work with Oscar de la Renta, because his company "focuses on craftsmanship [and] has a studio atmosphere similar to that found in Paris."
