New CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Winner!

Looks from Sophie Theallet Spring 2010
CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund has a new winner, Sophie Theallet. As winner Theallet takes home $200 000 and a year’s worth of mentoring! She follows in the footsteps of now much celebrated designer Alexander Wang. Considering this, we should definitely keep careful watch of what Theallet will do next.

Truthfully I hadn't had a chance to look at Sophie's collection before today but she is well known as having worked with Azzedine Alaïa for a decade before establishing resort line, Motu Tane with make up artist François Nars. According to,"The Brooklyn-based French one of Michelle Obama's Chosen Ones." Guess what Mrs O says is as good as gold. Check out the rest of her collection here.

The runners-up, Ervell and Pean, did not go home empty handed as they each received $50 000 and a business mentor.

Can't wait to see what's next for these young talents.
