We are so excited to announce that our friend and client Sophie Theallet, was crowned the winner @ the Vogue CFDA Fashion Fund last night here in NYC.
The French-born, New York-based designer, who started her own label three years ago after 14 years @ Azzedine Alaia and Jean Paul Gaultier, won the $200,000 prize which will be used towards developing her company. Theallet, 45, was up against nine other emerging designers for the prize, which last year was awarded to Alexander Wang. She presented her third collection at New York Fashion Week in September, a Marrakesh-inspired range of soft tunics and dresses for spring/summer 2010.
Last night's award ceremony was co-hosted by US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and the CFDA's president, Diane von Furstenberg, and attended by designers Alber Elbaz of Lanvin, Vera Wang, celebrities Nicole Kidman and Alexa Chung, and models Karen Elson, Jessica Stam and Jaquetta Wheeler
Congratulations to Sophie and Steven!!
