Saint Louis is keen on building the future of fashion. Led by the Saint Louis Fashion Fund, a new non-profit that includes leaders in the culture, fashion, higher education, law and business fields, the organization is continuing their mission to discover and support emerging designer talent through their second annual Caleres Emerging Designer Award. The competition will give six finalists the opportunity to present their collection at Saint Louis Fashion Week and compete for the $25,000 grand prize. They will also receive editorial coverage, business mentoring from the Saint Louis Fashion Fund jury panel which includes Gary Wassner, designer Lisa Perry along with many other notables such as Fern Mallis and Stan Herman. The 2014 winner was NY-based designer Daniella Kallmeyer and Charles Harbison of Harbison was the runner-up. Other finalists included Wai Ming, Remi Canarie, Collina Strada and Jessie Liu.
