On Wednesday, the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund announced the top finalists for its annual competition.
The ten finalists selected are Wes Gordon; Tanya Taylor; Ryan Roche; Brett Heyman of handbag line Edie Parker; shoe designer Paul Andrew; Daniel Corrigan and Jake Sargent of Simon Miller; Eva Zuckerman of Eva Fehren; Gigi Burris of Gigi Burris Millinery; Natalie Levy and Grant Krajecki of Grey Ant; and Orley's Matthew Orley, Alex Orley, and Samantha Florence.
Each designer will work with members from the selection committee, including Anna Wintour, Diane von Furstenberg and Jenna Lyons, to name a few.

Good luck all!
