The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winners were announced last night during a star-studded party that also celebrated the competition's 10th anniversary. At the top of the heap? Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne of menswear line Public School. The pair were all smiles — and, wouldn't you be, too? The honor comes with a $300,000 cash prize to invest in their line and a yearlong mentorship with a fashion industry veteran. Womanswear designer Juan Carlos Obando and jewelry designer Marc Alary were named runners-up. Each will be awarded $100,000 and a mentorship, as well.
Julianne Moore, who looked stunning in a stand-out red, sequined dress, introduced keynote speaker, Tom Ford, who announced the evening's winners. Also in attendance? A-listers of the design and film world alike. We're talkin' Orlando Bloom, Vanessa Hudgens, Allison Williams, and tons more. Stay tuned for pics to come, and congrats to all the winners!
