On May 29, Saks, CFDA, and Vogue announced the 2024 Fashion Fund finalists, celebrating 20 years of the Fund with a new group of designers who are just as exciting and talented as their predecessors.
The winner will receive $300,000, and the two runners-up will each take home $100,000. The program will continue to foster meaningful business mentorships and provide a pathway to success for all finalists.
The Fashion Fund winner will be announced in mid-October at a celebratory dinner gala.
This milestone year’s group of CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists reflects the creativity and diversity of American design, from women’s and men’s sportswear to eveningwear and semi-precious, fashion and ethical jewelry. These exciting young voices will play a significant role in shaping the future of American fashion,” Steven Kolb, CEO of the CFDA, said.
The 2024 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund is generously supported by Fashion League, Instagram, Nordstrom, Saks, Tommy Hilfiger, and Vogue. Saks has consistently supported the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund over the years as part of its strategy to nurture the next generation of fashion talent by offering exposure, education, and equitable access to opportunities for success.

As part of this year’s Fashion Fund season, Nordstrom will invite the ten finalists to participate in the Nordstrom Secure the SPACE Challenge for the second year. One winner will be selected to have their collection featured in select Nordstrom stores for an upcoming season. Launched in 2015, Nordstrom SPACE is an in-store and online boutique dedicated to advanced and emerging designers. The Secure the SPACE Challenge will take place on Thursday, June 6th.
“What better way to celebrate the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund’s twentieth year than with this year’s group of finalists, who perfectly represent the creativity and ambition of American fashion today. Every year the finalists thrill and surprise us as we get to know them, and the class of 2024 will, I am sure, be no different,Anna Wintour, Chief Content Officer, Condé Nast, and Global Editorial Director, Vogue, said.
For its 20th milestone occasion, the Fashion Fund is reviving the Design Challenge, a legacy program supported by the Tommy Hilfiger brand. Tommy Hilfiger, the founder and principal designer, will also serve as the lead mentor to the ten finalists. This will be the first Design Challenge since 2019.
