Designer News. A Toast to Ecco Domani’s Fashion Foundation Award Recipients.

January 2, 2008 • Fashion


Winemaker, Ecco Domani is becoming known for their annual Fashion Foundation awards for emerging designers and labels…almost more so than their wine. The 7th annual 2008 award winners are…Elise Overland, Alexander Wang, Réyes by José Ramón Reyes, Lyell by
Emma Fletcher and Wayne by Wayne D. Lee in the women’s wear category,
and Loden Dager by Alexander Galan, Oliver Helden, Paul Marlow, Matthew
Sandager and Melissa Vail for men’s wear.

The Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation is also bestowing
an award in the accessories category (new this year) to Subversive
Jewelry, designed by Justin Giunta.

The seven winners will receive
$25,000 each toward the presentations of their new collections during
next month’s New York Fashion Week. They were chosen from more than 100
entries by a panel of fashion executives. Among the criteria were a
maximum of five years in business, at least one retail account,
references and submissions of look books or photographs of their
designs. The committee then narrowed the playing field down to 25
semifinalists and picked the winners based on samples of their most
current collections.

Past winning designers who have
received the award and since have been able
to develop their businesses significantly, include the designers of
Proenza Schouler, Peter Som, Zac Posen, Thakoon, Doo.Ri, Derek Lam,
Erin Fetherston, Rag & Bone, Rodarte, Brian Reyes, VPL, Palmer
Jones, Vena Cava and Angel Chang.
