Meet the 10 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalists Before a Winner is Announced

Starting November 10th, the 10 finalists for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund—A.A., Altuzarra, Carlos Campos, Creatures of the Wind, Cushnie et Ochs, Fenton Fallon, Finn Jewelry, Ohne Titel, Pamela Love and Suno—will be featured exclusively online at thecorner.com, along with their respective collections.

This is a historical first in the judging process, since coverage usually does not occur until after the winners are announced. Not that we're complaining—there's going to be some pretty awesome stuff to check out. In addition to a behind-the-scenes video with Steven Kolb (Chief Executive Officer of the CFDA), the site will feature Q&A sessions with each of the finalists. Also (best of all!), visitors will be able to pre-order select items from the designers' resort and spring 2012 collections. Thank goodness they aren't asking the public to vote! We have no idea how the CDFA is going to choose from such a talented bunch.

The winners (including the main recipient and two runners-up) will be announced on November 14th and receive financial backing and professional business mentoring. Who would you choose to win?
