Winner, Winner, Winner at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Dinner

At the risk of stating the obvious — and being indelicate in doing so — the12th annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund dinner was all about the money. The event, held Monday night at Spring Studios in New York, was the culmination of the four-month fashion boot camp during which the 10 finalists all but pledge their first born to Vogue and the CFDA in exchange for the chance at $ 400,000 and a year of mentorship ($ 150,000 for the runners-up).
But, surprise! When Amanda Seyfried took to the stage with Riccardo Tisci, who was the evening’s inspirational designer of the year, to unveil the winner, she revealed a change of plans: There would be three winners instead of one, and each would receive $ 300,000 and a year of mentorship. No runners-up this year, just winners and “finalists.” In the former camp was shoe designer Aurora James of Brother Vellies; Rio Uribe of Gypsy Sport, and Jonathan Simkhai. In the latter — Baja East, Baldwin, Cadet, CG, Chromat, David Hart and Thaddeus O’Neil.
The decision to up the money and the number of winners was reached that morning, according to Steven Kolb, president and chief executive officer of the CFDA. “What happens in this process
