NEW YORK — The Council of Fashion Designers of America and Vogue magazine want to give designers a better chance of making it on Seventh Avenue.
The CFDA and Vogue on Wednesday said they would jointly establish a fund to grant awards of up to $100,000 to at least two designers annually, beginning next September. Anna Wintour, editor in chief of Vogue, said that the magazine is contributing $1 million — among the publication’s largest philanthropic efforts to date — and that a capital campaign has been launched with the goal of raising $5 million to create the program, which is called the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund.
