Episode 5: Stitched Back Together: The Birth of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund
The attacks on 9/11 disrupted the entire American cultural and economic landscape. With the fashion industry in a period of instability, the next wave of fashion talent would need help to stay afloat. Vogue recognized the need to support emerging designers and in partnership with the CFDA, created the Fashion Fund. The fund paved the way for influential designers like Rodarte, Jason Wu, and later Christopher John Rogers. Join us as we celebrate their paths to success and to dressing former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama.
Episode featuring: Kate and Laura Mulleavy (Rodarte), Jason Wu, Christopher John Rogers, Sally Singer, Meredith Koop and Vogue’s editorial team Anna Wintour, Mark Holgate, Nicole Phelps, and Virginia Smith. Hosted by Hamish Bowles.
