What do Proenza Schouler, Zac Posen Derek Lam, Rodarte, Erin Fetherston and Alexander Wang have in common? Well, besides the fact that they're all amazing designers—they are all former winners of the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation grant.
Starting this month, the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation commences its 11th annual season of searching for the most talented emerging designers in the country. Since 2001, Ecco Domani Wines of Italy has helped launched the careers of more than 60 designers, taking them from unknown artists to up-and-coming fashion superstars.
This year, Ecco Domani will select seven designers both to receive a $25,000 as well as to showcase their collections on the ultimate stage—New York Fashion Week.
