CFDA Wrap-up: Alexander the Great
The simultaneously cutest and fiercest designer fashion has at the moment, Alexander Wang, conquered the competition last night at the 2008 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards. He took home the big prize of $200,000 and a full year of mentoring. That cash is a king's ransom for a young designer in these tough times, and Wang deserves the gift. He's nearly a child prodigy. At 24 Wang has already been designing and holding fashion shows for almost a decade. So, don't let his babyface fool you; he's a fashion force to be reckoned with. Here's footage of Wang's most recent runway show for Spring/Summer '09. I love his tough girl chic aesthetic.
Congrats, Mr. Wang! Don't spend all of your money in one place (I figure you're still young and impressionable enough to require a little motherly advice...).
