Finally Honduras is getting recognized by fashion & not because of crappy politicians!

The nominations for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund are out! The judging panel which includes the unique & amazing Anna Wintour, the CFDA president Diane Von Furstenberg, Jenna Lyons, and Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of nothing less than Proenza Schouler, announced their ten choices for this year’s award.

In case you don’t know The Fund was created to recognize American fashion talent & it starts with the nominations followed by a special design project, and as well of a fashion show in LA. There'll be one winner (last year the Fund gave $300,000) and two runner-up prizes ($100,000 each) & the ceremony will be on November 14th.

This year’s nominees are:

• Carlos Campos
• Antonio Azzuolo
