After four months of grueling Project Runway-style competition between ten finalists, agendered sportswear line (and designer of the new White Castle uniform) Telfar was announced the winner of the CFDA/'Vogue' Fashion Fund.

Holding his trophy, he told the New York Times, "I'm taking this thing home to Queens."
