Headed by none other than Rose McGowan and Nicole Richie, the style savvy stars were on hand to celebrate the 10 finalists for the seventh-annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund initiative, which provides financial support and business mentorship for emerging designers.
The winner(s) will be announced in New York City on November 15 at a gala dinner underwritten by eBay.
Says Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour: “Fashion is probably the only industry in the world where its fledgling talents are expected to be as creatively adept at running a business as they are at design. Many, clearly, are not, and it’s through the support of the Fund that these promising designers will be able to build a future for themselves — and for American fashion.”
Other celebrities in attendance included the likes of Mena Suvari, Molly Sims, Eva Mendes and stylist to the stars Rachel Zoe.
