For the fifth year in a row, a jeweler has been in the top three for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award.
Announced yesterday evening, Marc Alary, the only jeweler finalist this year, is runner-up along side womenswear designer Juan Carlo Obando, with the big prize going to menswear designers Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne of Public School. This prestigious award gets Alary $100,000 (the winner takes home $300,000), plus valuable mentoring and a presentation at Spring 2015 New York Fashion Week, among other opportunities. It’s the 10th anniversary of the award that was started to support up-and-coming designers and past jeweler runners-up have been Monique Péan (2009), Eddie Borgo (2010), Pamela Love (2011), and Jennifer Meyer (2012).
