>> In the last year, Prabal Gurung and Joseph Altuzarra have both skyrocketed in the spotlight, and now they have a little extra pocket change for their sure-to-be-watched Fall 2010 presentations. Both designers, along with Ross Menuez of Salvor Projects and The Blonds, were awarded $25,000 apiece by the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation for their Fall womenswear presentations, as was John Patrick Organic, awarded in the sustainable design category, and Irini Arakas of Prova in the accessories category.
For the first time, in addition to their own singular New York Fashion Week presentations, the winning designers will also partake in a group Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation runway show Feb. 15 at the Bryant Park Tents. All the show's comings and goings will be taped for a documentary about the winners, to be aired on the Lifetime Network in March.
