In the 10 years since they graduated from Parsons and started their powerhouse label Proenza Schouler, designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez have earned awards and accolades from all corners of the industry. This month marks another big milestone: the designers have opened their very first store at 822 Madison Avenue in New York. "All these classic designers are up here — the Chanels, Celine, Jil Sander, with Dolce & Gabbana and Cartier across the street," Hernandez said. "It just seems kind of big-league."
And while opening a store is undoubtedly a big move for the duo, they've already accomplished a great deal in the decade they've spent in fashion. Herein, a timeline of their other impressive accomplishments throughout the years.
