CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award 2024 opens registrations for the 20th anniversary year

The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and Vogue have opened the application process for the 2024 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award.

The annual fund returns for its 20th edition – this time with the relaunch of the Design Challenge, which was discontinued in 2019.

For this year’s edition, the US fashion label Tommy Hilfiger will support the ten finalists of the competition as main mentor.

Danielle Frankel Hirsch, 2019 runner-up, will also lead a committee of past finalists and winners to address the program’s funding options. Committee members include Emily Adams Bode Aujla and Alejandra Alonso Rojas, among others.

“When we launched the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, we had no idea that we would one day celebrate its 20th anniversary,” Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue US, said in a statement. “We are able to achieve this thanks to the many wonderful designers who have participated over the years, and we look forward to welcoming those who will make up our Class of 2024.”

The winner of the fund will receive $300,000 in prize money. The two runners-up will each receive $100,000. In addition, all three award winners are supported by mentorship.
