Anna Wintour, television star is not something that immediately comes to mind when thinking of the most powerful woman in fashion. Think again (maybe?). Enter The Fashion Fund, a new (sort of) six-part show documenting the 10th Annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. The selection committe includes J.Crew’s Jenna Lyons (who I LOVE), Rag & Bone’s Marcus Wainwright and David Neville, Diane von Furstenburg, Anna Wintour (duh) and Reed Krakoff. Tough crowd. According to reports by Refinery 29 the US network Ovation will screen the show this December, another reason to look forward to the greatest month of the year! The only tiny niggle is that this show actually existed three seasons ago on Hulu, but wasn’t particularly well-watched. Better luck this time? Ten designers are up for the chance to win $300,000, whilst two runner ups are in for $100,000 PLUS business mentorship. Past winners include Alexander Wang, Joseph Altuzarra, Zac Posen and Rodarte. But don’t worry – hopefully anything involving Anna Wintour will rise above the reality TV competition cliches of The X Factor and the like. Regardless, I’ll be tuning in. See you in December Anna!
