Vogue Fashion Fund Finalists Announced

From 3.1 Phillip Lim's Fall 2007 collection.

Cat's a little behind, but here are the ten finalists for the CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund. The winner scores $200,000, mentorship with some big designer, and a spread in Vogue. (via Fashionista)

Last year, the prize was taken home by Travota, the line helmed by the Southern California team Jeff Halmos, John Whitledge, Josia Lamberto-Egan and Sam Shipley. Wouldn't it be fantastic if D-town were represented in the line up someday. Cat thinks we have the talent emerging...

Anyway, here are this year's finalists:

Erin Fetherston Yes, the Erin Fetherson whose Target collection debuts September 15.

Michael Bastian Former men's fashion director of Bergdorf Goodman.

Philip Crangi Jewler who likes hammered metal.

Three AsFour

Vena Cava
