Billy Reid Named Winner of the 2010 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award

Now Billy Reid can join the ranks of such adored designers as Alexander Wang and Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler. The Alabama-based men’s and womenswear designer was just named the winner of the 2010 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award last night, which includes a $300,000 cash prize, business mentor and bronze swan statue designed by Rachel Feinstein. Billy Reid must be a man after my heart, because he and his wife celebrated the honor with a post-ceremony beer and burger at a favorite dive. Congratulations, Billy!
