A CFDA DOUBLE-HEADER: After Monday night’s annual awards show, the CFDA struck again Tuesday for a dinner to toast the current CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winners. J. Crew’s Jenna Lyons and Vogue’s Mark Holgate hosted the evening at Lafayette for Fashion Funders, whether they were the winner (Greg Chait of The Elder Statesman), runners-up (Tabitha Simmons and Jennifer Meyer) or finalists (basically all the other designers there). Pamela Love was still high off her win from the night before. Asked if she went out and celebrated her Trova for the Swarovski Award for Accessories Design, she admitted nerves had gotten the better of her. “I had a stomach ache,” she said. “I went to Vera Wang’s party, and then I had to go home.” Prabal Gurung, Philip Crangi, Justin Salguero and Daniel Silberman from Illesteva, and The Man Repeller, Leandra Medine, were all there. So were Ken Downing of Neiman Marcus and Lane Crawford’s Sarah Rutson, who had just deboarded a plane from Hong Kong for a 10-day stay for resort season in New York. Not a vacation.
