The leading luxury automaker and the venerated arbiter of fashion join forces to usher in the new fashion season
Exquisite design, top talent and innovative fashion converged during "The Lexus Fashion Preview" fashion show at the 57th Annual Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. On Friday, August 17, 2007, Lexus and Vogue showcased collections from the next generation of young American design talent to more than 1,500 guests at the premier invitation-only fashion event.
The show—hosted by Vogue's fashion news and features director Sally Singer—revealed the collections from the finalists of the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers of America/Vogue Fashion Fund initiative. The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund competition is the fashion industry's intense search for the talent that will emerge as the next great American designer. Selected from a field of hundreds of initial applicants, the 10 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists will compete for the top prize of $200,000 and the opportunity to be mentored by the fashion industry's top designers and executives.
