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.
