The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Reveals Its Top Ten

-------

2013 CFDA/ Vogue Fashion Fund Finalists

“I think my stomach dropped to the floor and all the blood rushed out of my hands and my feet,” said Misha Nonoo of her reaction when she learned she was one of the ten 2013 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists. The emerging-designer initiative invited program alums and industry insiders, including Thakoon Panichgul, Prabal Gurung, Pamela Love, and Max Osterweis, to Rag & Bone’s Meatpacking District studio last night, where the names of this year’s top picks were revealed. Now in its tenth year, the program will announce the 2013 winners—who will receive financial support and mentoring—at a Gala in L.A., on November 11.

This year’s finalists—Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne of Public School, Veronica Miele Beard and Veronica Swanson Beard of Veronica Beard, Marc Alary of Marc Alary Jewelry, Tim Coppens, Todd Snyder, Misha Nonoo of Nonoo, Shimon Ovadia and Ariel Ovadia of Ovadia & Sons, Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin of Tome, Commodore Jason Jones of Parabellum, and Juan Carlos Obando—were selected by a group of influencers, which included new judges Marcus Wainwright and David Neville of Rag & Bone.

Masked Ravers And A Summer Soiree

-------

Christina Ricci at the Fresh Air Fund galaIt was New York’s first sticky evening of the season last night, so guests were glad that the Fresh Air Fund gala, held at Pier Sixty’s waterside venue, offered just that. Fresh Air Fund provides inner-city children with summer experiences out in the country, and the evening’s cause had guests talking about their own summer rituals, then and now. Richard Chai had a family camp in Connecticut growing up, and whenever Thakoon Panichgul gets out of the city, he’s an avid gardener. Christina Ricci recalled, “I worked as a child, so I didn’t spend a lot of time going to camp!” Except for once—who could forget Wednesday Addams’ stint at Camp Chippewa?

A few blocks up Eleventh Avenue at the McKittrick Hotel, Leigh Blake hosted a private performance of Sleep No More to launch her charity Act V’s new initiative, EndGame: The Global Campaign to Defeat AIDS, TB, and Malaria.

After the performance, the vodka started flowing, and a rave broke out in the McKittrick great hall. The venue had everyone in a noir, voyeuristic mood, and many guests—like Simon Doonan—chose to keep their Sleep No More masks on while dancing. “It is important to wear a mask when you get to my age and you haven’t had a face-lift,” joked Doonan. Before hitting the turntables, Chelsea Leyland, too, weighed in on the party accessories. “I feel like I’m in a Stanley Kubrick film,” she said. “Makes me want to be naughty.”

Shoppers, Gird Thyselves: Fashion’s Night Out Approaches

-------

Ready, set, FNO: September 6th marks the fourth annual Fashion’s Night out, the no holds barred evening of shopping that kicks off the spring shows during New York Fashion Week. The definitive guide to the action, www.fashionsnightout.com goes live today, detailing the goings-on near you—whether that means Manhattan or one of the more than 500 participating U.S. and international cities.

In NYC, boutiques will celebrate with extended hours, the better to lap up snacks, drinks, and celebrity sightings. Alexa Chung will spin at Moschino; Solange Knowles, at DVF. MAC’s Soho store may have the event to beat, with a live performance by Azealia Banks. Some stores will even debut new products: Balenciaga will unveil the Pumpkin collection, an accessories collaboration with Vogue creative director Grace Coddington featuring her beloved cat, Pumpkin; Chloé will release its new Alice bag. Over at Stella McCartney, you can even design your own handbag.

If Fashion’s Night Out alone won’t get you out of the house, maybe Bergdorf Goodman’s 111th birthday will—the retailer is taking advantage of the timing to celebrate its centennial-plus, with guests including Rachel Zoe and Thakoon Panichgul. At Saks, the focus is on designers, with appearances from Max and Lubov Azria, Oscar de la Renta (who will launch his new fragrance), Suno’s Erin Beatty and Max Osterweis (who have collaborated with Minx to create special nail designs) and Kimberly Ovitz (who’s teamed up with Rihanna’s tattoo artist, Josh Lord, to create custom body art for partygoers), among others.

The streets will teem; will the registers ring? That remains to be seen, though the outlook is hopeful. But those who prefer to avoid the crowds can splurge in comfort, too: Again this year, there’ll be plenty of deals accessible right from their apartments, with special offers and savings online.

Plus-Ones: Who’ll Be Arm-In-Arm At The Met On Monday

-------

Last night’s model-packed dinner for Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing reminded you of what you already knew: The world is in town for Monday’s Met gala. Rousteing had flown in from Paris for the occasion, as had his fellow designer Anthony Vaccarello, also in attendance. And so, too, had some of the runway’s top models, who are fitting the gala in between their hectic shooting schedules. So who’s going with whom?

Rousteing revealed that he’s taking Joan Smalls as his date, though he couldn’t say what she’d been wearing: He made four dresses, and Joan will make her own pick. Vaccarello is taking Anja Rubik, who closed his Fall ’12 show. Constance Jablonski, who spent dinner tête-à-tête with Kasia Struss, will be with Haider Ackermann. And Karlie Kloss, fresh from shooting in Bahia, will accompany Jason Wu. “He comes up to about my waist,” the Amazonian model said with a laugh. “But it’s his own fault. He picks the shoes!”

In other Met news, Roland Mouret will bring Doutzen Kroes, and Chanel will bring Gaspard Ulliel, the French actor who is the face of its Bleu de Chanel fragrance. Nordstrom’s table, hosted by Pete Nordstrom and Jeffrey Kalinsky, will seat several of the nights heavy hitters: Alexander Wang with Azealia Banks; Erdem Moralioglu with Arizona Muse; Rachel Zoe with Karolina Kurkova and Zoe’s husband Rodger Berman; and Thakoon Panichgul with Christina Ricci.
