THIS NOVEMBER WE CELEBRATE the fifteenth year of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, our annual initiative to find and nurture the very best new American design talent. In honor of this anniversary, Tonne Goodman and Mikael Jansson photographed models Kendall Jenner and Imaan Hammam wearing many of the past winners and finalists, from Proenza Schouler to Gypsy Sport, Rodarte to Telfar, Alexander Wang to Thom Browne. It’s an impressive roll call of designers who’ve gone from being local heroes to marquee names. There’s also a portrait of all those who are taking part this year: Batsheva, Bode, Christian Cowan, Hunting Season, Jonathan Cohen, Luar, Matthew Adams Dolan, Pyer Moss, Rebecca de Ravenel, and Scosha. Congratulations to all of you! Meanwhile, Sally Singer, our Creative Digital Director and a member of the…

When I was a child, my mother liked telling people that I’d learned French in a month flat. It was true: My family had moved to a Francophone country, and a few weeks of playing outside was all it took. But her retellings weren’t simply boasts about her daughter’s abilities; they, like much of my childhood, were proof of just how easily a young brain, not yet calcified with experience and expectation, can adapt. From there, I would learn firsthand that it isn’t just language that can be absorbed. Like both of my parents, I was born in Sudan. But by the time I came along, in the mid-1980s, a fragile political situation had become increasingly volatile. My parents had met in England a decade earlier as doctoral students, and returned…

Bette Midler sings the praises of her longtime friend. MICHAEL KORS IS WHAT EVERY young designer wants to grow up to be: a gajillionaire. There, I’ve said it—but let me add that I don’t think there’s a single soul who would begrudge him a nickel of that. He made it the old-fashioned way—by working hard and using every ounce of his enormous talent, his intelligence, and his radiant good humor to lift him to the top of a business based on dreams and that most ephemeral of things: beauty. It was many, many years ago that I first encountered Michael, on the island of Capri, at the sidewalk bar in front of the Grand Hotel Quisisana. (I mean, of course it would be Capri—doesn’t it make perfect sense? Just look at his ads! Everyone…

WHEN JOE ALWYN WAS NINE, he became obsessed with the swashbuckling Antonio Banderas movie The Mask of Zorro and began “scratching little zeds” into the furniture of his London home. His parents—documentarian father; psychotherapist mother—sent him to the local community center for fencing lessons, where he caught the eye of a casting director and ended up auditioning to play Liam Neeson’s stepson in Love Actually. “I didn’t know anything about anyone,” the actor, now 27, remembers. The part went to someone else, but a seed—an interest in “the process, the idea of playing”—was planted. It bore fruit when Alwyn was 23 and was plucked from London’s Royal Central School of Speech & Drama in his third year to play the title role in Ang Lee’s 2016 Iraq War film Billy Lynn’s…

“OH MY GOD, YES,” says Wes Gordon, entering a banquette-filled room at the offices of Carolina Herrera, where he became creative director this past February. “It’s Dolly Parton, right?” An ear-to-ear smile breaks across the blue-eyed designer’s face. Parton’s “9 to 5” is pumping through the sound system, and a model—Gordon is in the middle of a fitting, a few days before his debut runway show for the house—has appeared in a dramatic tiered top and skirt. The pieces float with rings of lace and daisy-embellished tulle—the look is very country, something of a New Age Southern-belle Dolly. “It’s a sign,” says the Atlanta-raised Gordon, kicking back and sipping an iced coffee through a paper straw (“a new office policy,” he says). Then he laughs. “Over Labor Day Weekend, I…
