Joseph Altuzarra Wins $300K CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Prize

Joseph Altuzarra has a golden goose. OK, technically it’s a bronze swan, but you get the idea. The French-born, New York-based designer was presented with the Rachel Feinstein-designed avian trophy by actress (and Vogue cover girl) Rooney Mara on Monday evening at New York’s Skylight Soho, where the Council of Fashion Designers of America and Vogue announced the recipients of the eighth annual awards from the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. Altuzarra, who was also nominated for the award last year, bested nine other finalists to take home the $300,000 Fashion Fund prize and a steady stream of business mentoring from industry veterans. Runner-up honors—$100,000 each and a lovely bronze egg—went to designers Shane Gabier and Chris Peters of Creatures of the Wind and beloved jewelry designer Pamela Love. The other finalists were Antonio Azzuolo (A.A.), Carlos Campos, Michelle Ochs and Carly Cushnie (Cushnie et Ochs), Soraya Silchenstedt (Finn Jewelry), Dana Lorenz (Fenton/Fallon), Alexa Adams and Flora Gill (Ohne Titel), and Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty (Suno). Get to know them better by tuning into The Fashion Fund, a six-part series that premieres on Hulu on January 26.
