The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalists Show in LA
We’ve been following the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists since they were announced back in July. The group headed out west this past week to present an exclusive runway show at The Chateau Marmont. Fashion events are run a little differently then New York, as there’s more of a laid back atmosphere and nothing but an A-list crowd in attendance – it is Hollywood after all. The rain moved the party indoors and each designer presented looks from their spring 2011 collection inside the historic hotel’s lounge.
Seated front row were the hosts of the evening, Frédéric Fekkai and Vogue‘s West Coast editor, Lisa Love. Celebrities showing their support for the designers included Molly Sims, Nicole Richie, Eva Mendes, and more. The show brought the designers to a red carpet audience, so we wonder if we’ll be seeing any of these celebs in a CFDA/Vogue Fund Finalist dress in the near future?
