Big congrats are in order for the boys of Rochambeau. Laurence Chandler and Joshua Cooper have taken home the coveted Woolmark Prize for menswear alongside Gabriela Hearst for womenswear. This prestigious award has been given to designers that have later become fashion icons such as Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent. Joining the ranks of these legends is a huge honor for the young designers, but Laurence and Chandler are far from done. They are also finalists for the 2016 CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund award which is probably happening as I am typing this post. I have had the honor of attending all three seasons of Rochambeau during #NYFWM and it will always remain a must see for me! Good luck guys!!!
