Zara Spotlights Emerging Designers With CFDA in New Capsule Range
Enlisting four 2019 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists for an affordable fashion collection.
Following its first-ever lingerie collection, Zara has now teamed up with the CFDA for a capsule collection spotlighting exciting talent in today’s fashion industry. Barragán, Private Policy, ABASI ROSBOROUGH and Alejandra Alonso Rojas – four of the 2019 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists – have come together for a range of statement-making designs set at affordable price points.
Instead of creating new pieces from scratch, the four designers were given a Design Challenge to select a vintage garment and pair it with a new one, made using fabrics that meet Zara’s Join Life standards. Crafted with sustainability an environmental impact in mind, the collection is comprised of timeless garments that can be styled in any season.
ABASI ROSBOROUGH showcases a bold red suit set, which marries inspirations from designer Abdul Abasi’s service in the U.S. Military with Greg Rosborough’s background in basketball. Alejandra Alonso Rojas, a fourth-generation hand-knitter, combines traditional and experimental techniques to create a collectible, tie-dyed dress, pants and Kimono gown. Elsewhere, Barragán introduces an asymmetrical trench coat made with naturally grown linen, while Private Policy adds embroidered details to a pink tailored suit.
Check out the full range above. Priced from $199 USD to $329 USD, Zara’s collaborative capsule with the CFDA is now available at the retailer’s website.
