Anything Goes at the CFDA / Vogue Fall Fashion Fund
Designers hail their own this November in NYC
By Nancy Staab
When the fashion elite gather to fête up-and-comers, all style rules go out the window. From fedoras and feathers, to Crayola colors and basic black—the gala-goer’s looks were only limited to their imaginations.
An eclectic mix of designers, models, editors, stylists and starlets turned out for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund this November in NYC. The event featured Calvin Klein as the keynote speaker, while Paris-born and NYC-based designer Joseph Altuzarra was awarded this year’s Fashion Fund prize for emerging designer. Altazarra trained under Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler and Givenchy, before striking out on his own. Among the glitterati crowd on hand to celebrate his victory: Anna Wintour, CFDA president Diane Von Furstenberg, Jason Wu, Doutzen Kroes, Olivier Theyskens, Olivia Wilde, Alexander Wang, Amanda Seyfried, Lauren Santo Domingo, Rooney Mara, Hamish Bowles, Vera Wang, Ivanka Trump, LIya Kebede, Billy Reid, Prabal Gurung and Zoe Kravitz. Check out their fashion choices in the slideshow below.
