The Ecco Domani Foundation (which gets its money from Ecco Domani wines) has named its seven winners for 2011, who will each get $25,000 to use for their fall 2011 fashion shows during New York Fashion Week next month. Bibhu Mohapatra (one of our designers to watch last fall!), the Lake & Stars, M. Patmos, and Mandy Coon won in the womenswear category; Native Son won for menswear; Pamela Love won for accessories; and Study NY won for sustainable design. Past winners include Alexander Wang, Prabal Gurung, and Joseph Altuzarra, so the honorees are in good company.
