CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award Nominees

3.1 PHILLIP LIM- Phillip Lim
Ok, we all know I'm mildly obsessed with Lim, so I'll spare you that rant again.

BAND OF OUTSIDERS- Scott Sternberg

ERIN FETHERSTON- Erin Fetherston
I think Erin Fetherston is pretty adorable, and incredibly talented. She only did couture in Paris for a few years before she ever did ready-to-wear, and she's what? 25? Plus Zooey Deschanel sang at her fall 2007 ready-to-wear show, and I love Zooey Deschanel.

KOI- Koi Suwannagate
I'll be honest, I had to look her up. Her stuff is a little artisan-y for me. Don't love it.

MICHAEL BASTIAN- Michael Bastian
Apparently he was the men's fashion director of Bergdorf's for a while, so he should know what he's doing. I don't know much about menswear, so I'll leave that to someone else.

Had to look this guy up, too. Pretty stuff, but I'm not blown away.

ROGAN- Rogan Gregory
Eh. Reminds me of Rag & Bone, sort of, but Rag & Bone does it better.

THREEASFOUR LLC- Gabriel AsFour, Angela Donhauser, Adi Gil
I am eternally fascinated by the AsFour/ThreeAsFour/Myself dramatics, but I think they're all a little nuts. Right now, Gabriel, Angela, and Adi are gloating and Kai Khune is crying.

VENA CAVA- Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai
I'm glad they were nominated. I think it's only a matter of time before Vena Cava is another 3.1, or thereabouts.

VPL- Victoria Bartlett
I have a very special place in my heart for VPL. When I was 18 and a little PR intern, I went to the VPL fall 2005 show afterparty and thought I had hit the big times. I actually met Victoria a few months ago at her showroom and still felt like the little starstruck girl I am. Regardless, I think she's doing something really cool and different, and I think her bags and shoes are brilliant.

So who am I rooting for? Erin Fetherston or Vena Cava. Lim's a big enough deal already.
