Yesterday, the 2009 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund nominees were announced. They are: menswear designers Patrick Ervell, Simon Spurr of Spurr, womenswear designers Alabama Chanin (sustainable), Gary Graham, Sophie Theallet, Flora Gill and Alexa Adams of Ohne Titel, Wayne Lee of Wayne, jewelry designers Monique Pean (philanthropy/sustainability), Waris Ahluwalia of House of Waris and George Esquivel of Esquivel Shoes. The winner of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund will be announced at a ceremony on November 16th. As has been the tradition for three years, a select few of the nominees will also be asked to participate in Gap Design Editions--a project which aims to introduce these smaller designers to a wider audience. Check out the designs of last year's nominees, all rendered in khaki and now on sale.
