Now in its 11th year of awarding $25,000 grants to emerging fashion designers, including past recipients Proenza Schouler, Alexander Wang, Altuzarra, and Rodarte, winemaker Ecco Domani announced the latest round of winners this morning. A team of fashion industry insiders, including T‘s Sally Singer, former Barneys fashion director Julie Gilhart, and Paper‘s Kim Hastreiter, judged the the womenswear, sustainable design, and accessories categories, while the menswear designer was selected by Barneys vice president Jay Bell, Park & Bond/Gilt Man style director Josh Peskowitz, and WWD‘s men’s fashion director Alex Badia. The women’s designers are Correll Correll by Vera and Daphne Correll, Eighteenth by Alexa Galler, Haus Alkire by Julie Haus and Jason Alkire, and Sunhee by Sunhee; the accessories winner is Dezso by Sara Beltran; the sustainable design category winner is Titania Inglis; the menswear winner is Tim Coppens. Each label, chosen from a group of 200 applicants, has $25,000 to use for their collections at New York fashion week.
