This husband and wife design duo founded by Laura and Khristopher Brock in 2013, is an elegant womenswear label known for its sophisticated draping techniques and emphasize high-quality construction with exceptional tailoring. The high-end ready-to-wear brand is stocked at retailers such as Barneys, Moda Operandi, Ssense and Forward by Elyse Walker. The couple received a $400,000 prize and will also benefit from a year of business mentorship from industry experts, focusing on specific needs for business expertise.

Adam Selman and Stirling Barrett of Krewe du Optic were the runners-up and will both receive $150,000. Here you will find a full list of this year’s finalists.

Last year’s surprising winner of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund was Paul Andrew, a US footwear and accessory designer, who is now Design Director of women’s footwear at Salvatore Ferragamo.

We congratulate winners, Laura Vassar Brock and Kristopher Brock and wish them the best of luck on their journey to the exciting world of fashion.
