NEW YORK — Anna Wintour, editor in chief of Vogue, is teaming up with her Italian counterpart, Franca Sozzani, editor in chief of Italian Vogue, in support of Italy’s emerging fashion talent.
At the close of the Italian shows on Sept. 30, Wintour and Sozzani will cohost a fund-raising dinner, which will be held at Milan’s Rotonda della Besana and is expected to attract 250 fashion leaders. That night, the winner of the first “Who is on Next” award, which was spearheaded by Sozzani and inspired by the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, will be announced. The initiative has been designed to help emerging Italian designers. Like their American counterparts, they face growing pains, from funding the production of a sample collection to staging a runway presentation.

And I’m not saying I’m Steph Curry, but when you’re on [showrunner] Ryan Murphy’s team, it seems more palpable than ever,” he continues. (Criss previously starred on “Glee,” another Murphy creation, although they didn’t directly work together.) “I feel like I’ve already won the lottery.” Read more in WWD.com (📸: @lexieblacklock ) #wwdeye #darrencriss #americancrimestory #emmys2018
