Irene Neuwirth Named CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalist

I was all "a-twitter" to get a late night phone call Monday from Irene Neuwirth, who was relaxing in Mexico when she got THE CALL, that she had been named a finalist in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Competition. (The previous week, she confided that there were so many applicants, there was no way she would make the cut, right). This is HUGE....The Vogue Fashion Fund, set up in 2003, offers a big cash prize of $200,000 to the winner and $50,000 to the two runners-up, to develop their businesses. The formal announcement was released the next morning, and all hell has broken loose at her studio to get ready for the interviews and photo shoots....for November Vogue, naturally.
We could not be more excited, for Irene is a talent and we just LOVE her things. Luckily, we had already scheduled her Personal Appearance and Trunk Show September 11 and 12 (Save the Dates), and just cannot wait!!! Irene, you go girl!!!!!!!
