Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Adds Sustainable Design Award To Program

On Our Radar: Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Goes Green

Ecco Domani has just added some green power to their Fashion Foundation by adding a sustainable design award to its existing program.

“The fashion industry as a whole is taking an important step towards eco-conscious design and production. Through this new award we are proud to acknowledge those emerging designers who are using their talent to make a difference in the world in which we live” , said David Bowman, senior director of marketing at Ecco Domani Wines.

The award will be open to a women's or menswear designer who exemplifies their commitment to sustainability based on three criteria: environment, social equity, and economic viability.

The 2009 winners, one in sustainable design, four womenswear, one menswear, and one accessories designer will each receive $25,000 towards their showing at NY Fall Fashion Week in February. This year's winners had a lot to say and we hope next year's will be just as exciting.

FYI, this contest is open to designers from all levels so if you're blessed with a sewing thumb, you can enter, too. For more information on how to apply, check out Eccodomani.com.
