CFDA Winner Sophie Theallet Gets a Mentor in de la Renta




    Last month, Sophie Theallet took home the coveted CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award, which, in addition to a cash prize included a year of mentorship.  The CFDA revealed yesterday that Oscar de la Renta will do the honors.

    Runners-up Patrik Ervell and Monique Péan will also work with industry figures, having been matched with fashion consultant Robert Burke and Tiffany & Co. chairman and CEO Michael Kowalski, respectively.

    The power pairing of de la Renta and Theallet should only catapult the young designer's career even further, and we expect strong results.
