AND THE MENTORS ARE…: Diane von Furstenberg now can add mentor to her résumé. As part of the 2008 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, which grants a year’s worth of mentoring from an industry executive to the winner and two runners-up, von Furstenberg was named the mentor to fund winner Alexander Wang. For one year, Wang will work with the designer and her team, including DVF president Paula Sutter. Andy and Kate Spade, meanwhile, were named mentors to runner-up Albertus Swanepoel, while Patrick Robinson and Andrew Rosen will mentor Vena Cava designers Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock.
