Yesterday the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund announced three winners of the four-month-long competition, which will air on the Oxygen network early next year. Here at Whitby we could not be more proud or supportive of Brother Vellies, a socially conscious artisan footwear company made in South Africa, Kenya and Morocco.

These shoes are beautifully designed. They incorporate the culture, local materials, community and thoughtful design as seamlessly as we've ever seen. Their heart is present in every piece.
