CFDA/Gilt All-Star Scholarship Award Winner Comes to Gilt.com!


While major American designers like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Tommy Hilfiger and Phillip Lim were recognized at the CFDA Awards on Monday night, there was one designer who was acknowledged who is just beginning his journey. Recent FIT graduate Kieran Dallison is the winner of this year’s CFDA/Gilt All-Star Scholarship Award, the first of its kind.

Chosen from a national pool of fashion design students and former CFDA scholarship winners, Kieran’s portfolio of jersey-based designs wowed the judging panel of luminaries…, including Harper’s Bazaar Editor-in-Chief Glenda Bailey, designer Prabal Gurung, Stacey Bendet of Alice + Olivia, Gilt Womens GM Jyothi Rao, and Lisa Smilor of the CFDA.

Kieran has produced a debut collection of sexy, stylish and fresh separates available only on Gilt.com! Starting June 8 at noon ET, you can buy pieces from the limited edition line, from T-shirt dresses with an edge to slinky jersey skirts to revealing rompers. Stay tuned for more from Kieran, the judges and the star-studded bash to celebrate the collaboration!

Gilt Chat: Rose McGowan on AmfAR, Edgar Allen Poe, and Polyester Pants

Rose McGowan is definitely a Gilt.com kind of girl: A driven actress (The Black Dahlia, Quentin Tarantino’s Grindhouse, and the upcoming Lifetime pic The Pastor’s Wife, to name a few) with a fearless fashion sense, she also uses her celebrity for good, working with amfAR to raise AIDS awareness. To coincide with her appearance in the newest amfAR PSAs, McGowan is curating a sale with Gilt.com. In addition to the gorgeous dresses and glam accessories Rose picked for her sale, we’ve also got an array of great items from amfAR chairman Kenneth Cole, and, as this year marks the 30th anniversary of the discovery of the AIDS virus, Gilt.com will also be selling ribbons Cole designed to benefit amfAR and the MTV charity Staying Alive (visit awearness.com). We got the chance to chat with McGowan about her involvement with the project, her fabulous fashion sense and her latest film roles, and it’s no exaggeration to say we all have a serious girl crush on her now. Read on, and we’re sure you will too!

Q: So how did you first get involved with Amfar?
I’ve gone to their events for probably, gee, almost seven years, mostly in Cannes. I think it’s an incredibly important and still very timely organization. A friend of mine was just diagnosed three weeks ago so, you know…the need for aid and awareness doesn’t stop. I think Kenneth Cole is amazing for doing this, and you guys are too; it’s a fantastic tie-in with Amfar. It’s a great marriage. I think regardless of whether you buy Kenneth’s clothing or not, it’s amazing the work he’s done for this cause.

Q: Why is it so important to educate young people about AIDS right now?
I think it’s particularly important because so many people these days believe you can just pop a pill and have the whole thing be done with, and that’s simply not the case. It’s a totally radical change in somebody’s life and lifestyle. Everything in their life has changed. I keep reading that the infection rates are just going up higher and higher. It’s really scaring people in London—I was just reading about that the other day—and the situation’s gotten kind of intense. I think it’s a very timely issue and I think it’s really important to be proactive on that front.
