And the winners are…

CFDA/Vogue fashion fund awards.

Alexander Wang won the $200000 prize… with Vena Cava and Albertus Quartus the runners-up. The judges have this ‘trend’ of picking winners. One year he/she is someone more recognized and the next is someone more to the underrated side. Past winners are 04′ Proenza Schouler, 05′ Trovata, 06′ Door Ri, 07′ Rogan. I was hoping for Richard Chai or Vena Cava to get it this time but they went for the more well-known Wang instead. Actually, I don’t think his Spring 09′ collection was stellar… but with this sum of money he will surely churn out a show-stopping collection for Fall 09′. Another thing to look forward to is probably the GAP design edition. Alexander Wang for GAP, sounds good already.

And lastly, Rodarte won the Swiss textile awards, worth 100000 euros. Thats around 70000 lesser than the CFDA/Vogue prize but hopefully they will make good use of those fundings and expand into their own shoes and accessories line with that money. Rodarte’s own shoe line? Sounds very good too.

    I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE RODARTE SHOE LINE TOO! Unpredictable “torture” themes again would be nice. HAHA!

    Anyway, I wasn’t surprised by the win of Alexander at first, judging from his popularity, though “worthy” might be debatable.
