CFDA Fashion Fund Gala
Each year, the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund (CVFF) supports emerging American design talent in finding success in the business of fashion, and recognizes one winner among ten finalists at a gala event in November. In light of the current state of the world and the fashion industry, CFDA and Vogue have repurposed the Fashion Fund for 2021 to reflect these changing times. The 2021 CVFF will continue to spotlight ten designer participants, but selected designers will automatically receive funds and mentorship. The change serves as an evolution of 2020’s A Common Thread initiative, which raised more than $5 million for more than 160 grant recipients.
