How is it already time for the CFDA/Vogue fashion fund finalists to be announced? Doesn’t it seem like just yesterday that designer Joseph Altuzarra won the main prize of £300,000 and mentorship from an industry expert?
Anyway, it’s someone else’s time to shine now, as ten brand new finalists have been revealed for the 2012 prize. The winner and two runners up will be announced at the CFDA/Vogue Gala on November 13th, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled.
The very deserving finalists are, drumroll please…
Andrea Lieberman, A.L.C.
Greg Armas, Assembly New York
Sofia Sizzi, Giulietta
Justin Salguero, Daniel Silberman, and Alina Silberman; Illesteva

Which of them do you think should walk away with the top prize? We’re not betting people, but if we were, we’d be tempted to do a bit of a sweepstake in the MFL office. Who’s your money on?
