The CFDA is thrilled to announce that Timo Weiland was selected as one of the winners of the the Ecco Domani Fashion Fund Award. The Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation has awarded $1.8 million in support of emerging designers, and has helped cultivate the careers of other CFDA Members including Zac Posen, Derek Lam, Alexander Wang, Joseph Altuzarra and Prabal Gurung.
“Through the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation, we are able to support talented fashion designers who are committed to celebrating style every day,” said Courtney O’Brien, Director of Marketing for Ecco Domani Wines of Italy. “Today, we are proud to raise a glass to this year’s award recipients and welcome them into the exclusive group of Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation alumni.”
“The Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation is one of the first and one of the most coveted emerging designer awards programs in the fashion industry,” said Marylou Luther, Editor of The International Fashion Syndicate and a judge for the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation. “This year’s winners represent an exciting blend of backgrounds, influences and approaches that highlight the promise of today’s young designers and complement an already impressive list of winners. The words Ecco Domani are the perfect metaphor for what these awards represent to the American fashion industry literally and figuratively—here’s tomorrow!”
