Watch: Inside The CFDA Audition Room!

By now, we're all familiar with the household names that were past winners and nominees of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. Prabal Gurung comes to mind, as does Rag & Bone. But, it's certainly not every day we get to go behind-the-scenes while the designers make their pitch to the judges. In this just-released video, we score an peek inside the decision room where designers are given just 15 (!) minutes to present their collection and vision, and wow the well-tailored pants off the likes of Diane von Furstenberg and Ms. Wintour herself.
This intimate look at the intense process makes us truly appreciate all that it takes to get there. There's a moment where Pamela Love's set collapses. Or, that time Anna asked Eddie Borgo to turn his music down. Watch the video below to see how 15 minutes can be life-changing. And, stay tuned for next week's announcement of the 2013 winners. Good luck to all the nominees!
