Fashion Fun: “The Fashion Fund” on Hulu

Saturday, November 26, 2011

We already know that out of ten finalists, cute, talented fashion designer Joseph Altuzarra won the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund and was applauded at a fancy, frock-filled party by Anna Wintour, Calvin Klein, Diane Von Furstenberg et al.; as well as pocketing a cool $30,000.

And now all the drama of dresses and accessories and MAC nail polish biting excitement of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund will be coming to Hulu and Hulu+ in a six-part series that promises to reveal what goes into fashion’s super competitive race to “the fund.” Think: “The Amazing Race” but with supermodels, not subways. Expect to see Altuzarra, as well as many of the other ten finalists like jewelry designers Pamela Love and Dana Lorenz of Fenton/Fallon, menswear master Carlos Campos and Suno, who make some of our favorite wildly printed pieces on the planet. Of course you’ll see other finalists too as they try and nab the grand prize as judges like Anna Wintour, DVF and the Proenza Schouler boys take notes.

The show, which premieres exclusively on January 26th on Hulu – just in time for New York Fashion Week – is yet another sign that TV services like Hulu are focusing more and more on original programming. Watch out network TV.

Let the fashion fund fun begin!
