The fashion fund series started yesterday on Hulu and Hulu Plus! Vogue and the Council of Fashion Designers of America started the Fashion Fund back in 2003 to support, discover and develop the talents of American fashion designers. Some familiar names behind the fund from past years are Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, and Rodarte. In 2011 more than 200 designers applied and only 10 finalists were chosen. Each designer gave unprecedented access into their lives and work, for all of us to enjoy in a six-part series produced by Annie Sundberg and Ricki Stern. Check out the first episode of 2012 below, and meet this year's finalists.
