>> The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund has determined its ten finalists for 2008.
Last year's winner, Rogan Gregory, was announced in November and received a monetary award of $200,000, with two runners-up reiving $50,000 each. For the past couple of years, the nominees have worked with Gap as part of a limited Gap Design Edition collaboration to gain more exposure, and many have also gone on to work with Target in limited-edition runs.
This year's nominees are:
Swaim and Christina Hutson of Obedient Sons & Daughters
Sophie Mayock and Lisa Buhai of Vena Cava
