MENTOR PAIRINGS: This year’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winner and runners-up have started to work with their mentors. Public School’s Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, who won the top prize of the fund’s 10th edition, are working with Alexander Wang president Rodrigo Bazan and KCD, which is providing PR services. Runners-up Marc Alary and Juan Carolos Obando, meanwhile, are being mentored by Tomas Maier and Proenza Schouler’s chief executive officer Shirley Cook respectively.
