Coinciding with our seventh year as an underwriter for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, we've created six in-store boutiques featuring items by the 2012 winner, runners-up and finalists.

You'll find the temporary boutiques in the following stores: downtown Seattle, San Francisco Centre, The Grove in Los Angeles, Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago, NorthPark Center in Dallas, and treasure&bond in New York.

The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund was established in 2003 to help emerging American designers build their brands through mentorships and financial support. The winner receives $300,000 and two runners-up receive $100,000 each.

Past winners and runners-up include Alexander Wang (2008), 3.1 Phillip Lim (2007), Thakoon (2006), Rogan (2007) and Billy Reid (2010).

WINNER GREG CHAIT OF THE ELDER STATESMAN

FINALIST SOFIA SIZZI OF GIULIETTA
