This year’s ten CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists were just announced by rag & bone’s Marcus Wainwright and David Neville. As the fund enters its tenth year, the list is exciting and promising — this class includes several menswear designers and a few relatively unheard-of brands. These lucky ten will have four months until they find out who wins; in that time, they’ll design pieces for Uniqlo as well as throw a runway show at the Chateau Marmont. Only one brand wins $100,000. But for now, congrats to all.
