Congratulations, Joseph Altuzarra! The designer took home the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Fashion Fund grand prize last night, which means he pocketed $300,000 to put towards his line. (Sophie Theallet, Billy Reid, and Alexander Wang all won the honor in years past.) Since launching his label in 2009, Altuzarra has turned out sexy, form-fitting clothes which have been snapped up by celebrity fans like Jennifer Lawrence and Kim Kardashian. We can’t wait to see what he creates with his new pot of gold—and who wears his designs next on the red carpet. To see more of Altuzarra’s work, click through the gallery of his resort 2011 collection.
