In the Know: Sophie Theallet wins CFDA Fashion Fund

In designer, France, In the Know on November 17, 2009 at 6:57 pm

I have to congratulate any burgeoning fashion designer given a chance to make it in the fierce world of fashion. In this case, French couturier Sophie Theallet is one of the very few lucky ones. She’s been winning awards in fashion since she was 18 and has even been given big breaks by designing a collection for Paris-based department store le Printemps, and working under Jean-Paul Gaultier and Azzedine Alaia. It all worked in her favour, she recently won the $200,00o cash prize and mentorship under the Council of Fashion Design of America/Vogue for the next year. Just what a fashion star needs.

Her line is available at Joseph (London), Barney’s (NYC) and online at
