Wang Wins 2008 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund

Nov 18 2008 - 10:24am

>> For its fifth anniversary, the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund went with the obvious choice [1], naming [2] Alexander Wang [3] the recipient of $200,000 plus a year of mentoring last night.  Vogue favorite Vena Cava [4] and a less expected choice, milliner Albertus [5] Swanepoel of Albertus Quartus, were both named runners-up and will receive $50,000 plus a business mentor.  The night's keynote speaker, John Galliano [6], and his date Charlize Theron were seated next to Anna Wintour and presented the top honors to a teary-eyed Alexander Wang, who said his thank yous [7] onstage as John Galliano [8] rubbed his arm in comfort.

Top hats seemed to be the order of the evening — Julie Gilhart [9] and John Galliano each sported one, the latter with a daisy chain, and Agyness Deyn had on a squished version — while carrot pants and one-shouldered dresses also received numerous nods [10].  Plenty of models are already back in town [11] from the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show [12]: Anne Vyalitsyna came with Costello Tagliapietra [13], Maryna Linchuk with Rag & Bone, Doutzen Kroes with Irene Neuwirth [14], and Arlenis Sosa Pena with Rogan [15].
