Last night, the sixteenth CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund prize was given to the emerging American designer, who has taken home four hundred thousand DOLLARS and a one-year mentorship!
Previous winners of the prize include Alexander Wang, Pyer Moss and Telfar.
It seems that a tad of money and good guidance combined with their talent can be an emerging designers breakthrough!
The judges of this year’s CFDA prize appointed Rogers as the most talented representation of American fashion’s future and honoured him for his reinterpretation of traditional evening wear and vibrant designs, which celebs from Ashley Graham to Cardi B love to be wrapped in!
And I’m sure we all remember how Roger’s gown for Lizzo made the grinch dipped in green-slime fashion!
Anna Wintour, also gave a strong statement at the CFDA gala saying: ‘With this year’s Fashion Fund finalists, we’ve seen not only great design but a wonderful commitment to progressive and inclusive values.’
