Do you follow the CFDA awards? I’m obsessed. I first learned about them through a series of great video shorts that were posted on Hulu about the 2011 competition. You can now watch those videos on Vogue.com.
Since then I’ve kept my eyes peeled for more videos online. They are no longer posted on Hulu. Last year the video series was available on Ovation TV. What? Where is that? Needless to say — I missed those videos. I’m crossing my fingers that I will be able to see the 2014 competition videos BEFORE I know who the winner is — not likely I suppose. As of now the Vogue site says — “The 2014 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund process will once again be documented on the series The Fashion Fund which will air on Ovation TV in November 2014.” #BOOO #PUTTHEFASHIONFUNDONLINE
Vogue just recently announced the finalists for 2014 on their website. Vogue did not include any hyperlinks on their website — but I have! I have obsessively Googled all the finalists and found their websites and videos about them. Enjoy!
