Vogue Fashion Fund is a global initiative, originally conceptualised by US Vogue. It was launched in India in 2012 as the Vogue India Fashion Fund, in association with the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI).

The designers were judged by a panel of experts including Vogue India team editor Priya Tanna, Fashion Director Anaita Shroff Adajania, Fashion Features Director Bandana Tewari and Condé Nast India Marketing Director Oona Dhabhar; FDCI President Sunil Sethi; Ensemble Executive Director Tina Tahiliani; Aza Fashions Chairperson Alka Nishar; designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee and guest judge designer Anita Dongre.

The winner and runners-up will be announced at an exclusive event in October. The winner will get a cash prize; a yearlong business/creative/marketing mentorship with an industry professional; access to prominent platforms in the industry; mentorship from Vogue; a fashion shoot in Vogue India and PR support.
