Next Episode of The Fashion Fund is
Step inside the fast-paced and competitive world of high fashion in Ovation's new original series, The Fashion Fund. Follow Vogue magazine's legendary editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, as she and the Council of Fashion Designers of America take aspiring designers on the journey of a lifetime—the competition for Fashion Fund Designer of the Year. Each week, designers from 10 emerging labels are put to the test through increasingly challenging steps of the competition. Judges like Diane von Furstenberg and top-level executives from Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and more, determine who wins the ultimate prize of $300,000 and a one-year mentorship with an industry expert. It will take every ounce of vision, skill and savvy to make one winner's fashion dreams come true.
Designers are given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be showcased in a star-studded Vogue magazine shoot aside Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Nick Jonas. Designers are presented the $20,000 Fossil Design Challenge. A few exceed expectations, while others are sent back to the drawing board. Rag and Bone visits Jonathan Simkhai to discuss his presentation skills.
Designers present their final looks for the Fossil Design Challenge inspired by cultural events from Star Wars to Burning Man to Broadway. Selby Drummond, Vogue accessories editor, grants the designers access to the famous Vogue closet and helps style the outfits before presenting to the panel of judges.
The designers head to LA for the final challenge of the competition, the Instagram Challenge. The designer's lines are presented at The Vogue/CFDA Fashion Show hosted by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West at the Chateau Marmont. It's a star-studded event with Reese Witherspoon, John Legend and other celebrities whose endorsements could make a fashion career.
