Vogue Fashion Fund docu-series launches on Amazon

Feb 25, 2016

Amazon announced Thursday the launch of The Fashion Fund, an Amazon Unscripted Series about the 2015 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. The 10-episode season is available for Amazon customers in the US. The company announced in October that it purchased the docu-series.

From R-L: Raul Arevalo, Matt Baldwin, Becca McCharen, Thaddeus Oneil, Scott Studenberg, Chris Gelinas, Aurora James, David Hart, Rio Uribe, Jonathan Simkhai, Brad Schmidt, John Targon - CFDA

The Fashion Fund follows the 2015 competition and the process of selecting designers for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund led by Anna Wintour, Diane von Furstenberg and Steven Kolb. Each year, the Fashion Fund committee nominates 10 designers to compete in a four-month long competition to win a cash prize and a mentorship from an industry professional. In 2015, the cash prize increased to $400,000 for the winner and $150,000 for the two runners-up.
The season features selection committee members, Anna Wintour; Diane von Furstenberg; Steven Kolb; Ken Downing of Neiman Marcus; Mark Holgate of Vogue; Jeffrey Kalinsky of Jeffrey New York and Nordstrom; Reed Krakoff; Jenna Lyons of J. Crew; Andrew Rosen of Theory; and Rag & Bone designers, Marcus Wainwright and David Neville. The 2015 designer and brand finalists included Baja East, Baldwin, Brother Vellies, Cadet, CG, Chromat, David Hart, Gypsy Sport, Jonathan Simkhai and Thaddeus O’Neil.

In conjunction with the premiere of The Fashion Fund, Amazon Fashion will launch a dedicated retail experience for customers to shop a curated selection of the Spring 2016 collections of this year’s designers.
New episodes of The Fashion Fund will be available every Thursday.
