Monique Péan Ad to Bow in Vogue’s September Issue

The fine jewelry designer competed against Suno, Creatures of the Wind, Public School and Eddie Borgo.

PÉAN’S VICTORY: Fine jewelry designer Monique Péan will be the recipient of a full-page ad in Vogue’s September issue. Kate Spade New York will produce creative and purchase the media for the ad, which is the culmination of a three-month-long initiative that the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund and Kate Spade New York have teamed up on to help designers take their brands to the next level. This is the program’s second year; Joseph Altuzarra won the contest last year. Péan competed against Suno, Creatures of the Wind, Public School and Eddie Borgo.

After participating in the brand-building seminars about setting brand goals, diversifying marketing options and creating a p.r. and social media strategy, each designer was asked to present a concept for an ad in Vogue as their final product.
