Subversive Jewelry had a great 2007, is set for 2008

By Andrea Thatcher on January 2nd, 2008


After being named a CFDA/Vogue fashion fund top ten finalist but missing the top prize, Subversive Jewelry has finally broken through as a winner in the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation awards. Not only did Justin Giunta’s jewelry earn the label a slot among the seven winners, the designs earned it the title of the first ever accessories winner in the Ecco Domani competition. Designers win $25,000 toward the presentation of their collections at New York Fashion Week, so we’re not sure where Subversive Jewelry will get to spend its prize. But we hope it goes towards more designs like this double strand pearl necklace, $560.

Rogan Gregory of Edun takes CFDA/Vogue fashion fund award; Bono must be proud

By Andrea Thatcher on November 16th, 2007


Edun designer Rogan Gregory, seen here with Bono and wife Ali Hewson, took home the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award at last night’s 7th on Sale gala. The ethical clothing designer has beaten out tough competition to win the $200,000 prize – like runners up Phillip Lim and jewelry designer Philip Crangi, who each recieved $50,000. Other finalists included Erin Fetherston, who will likely win in her own way with her Target collection, Scott Sternberg of Band of Outsiders, Michael Bastian and Victoria Bartlett of VPL, and Angela Donhauser and Adi Gil of Threeasfour among others. This is the first year that a business advisory committee made up of presidents and CEOs of labels like Calvin Klein, Cole Haan, and Diane Von Furstenberg will provide guidance and advice for all finalists.

By Andrea Thatcher on November 14th, 2007


Erin Fetherston has been a busy little bee since her move to New York. As Fetherston waits to hear about her CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund nomination, we are all waiting for her collection for Target to debut Sunday. But she’s had a few things to keep her busy – the Target model-less fashion show, the Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium premiere (sponsored by Target) where she is seen at left, and last night a party in her honor hosted by Robert Verdi at his Luxe Laboratory. All of these appearances reminded us to check and see if any more items have appeared on Target’s Web site. Continue reading to find out!
