Since the 10 finalists were announced in July, we have had the chance to gain insight from each judge: Anna Wintour and Mark Holgate from Vogue, Jenna Lyons from J Crew, Diane Von Furstenberg, Reed Krakoff, Ken Downing from Neiman Marcus, Steven Kolb from the CFDA, Jeffrey Kalinsky at Jeffrey New York, Andrew Rosen at Theory and Marcus Wainwright and David Neville at Rag & Bone. 

Look back on Chromat's exciting CVFF journey as the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund wraps up this Monday. And be sure to tune in this coming February: the competition will be broadcast as a reality docu-series on Amazon Prime

FOSSIL DESIGN CHALLENGE

Robert Irwin's exhibit at Dia:Beacon served as the inspiration for the Chromat Electroluminescent Dress. The exposed structure of the mesh exhibit walls and the soft glow of each fluorescent fixture emerging through these layers informed the look's structure and color.
