Congratulations are in order for New York City designer Susan Woo. The Gotham native is the 2013 winner of the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award for Sustainable Design, a mantle previously worn by the likes of Titania Inglis, Tara St. James of Study NY, John Patrick of Organic, and Bodkin’s Eviana Hartman. Bestowed by Italian winemaker Ecco Domani, the prize comes with a $25,000 grant for staging a runway show or presentation during New York Fashion Week.

WOO HOO

Woo’s eponymous label, which she launched in 2009, ranges from casual to evening-wear. Everything is made locally in the Big Apple’s fabled Garment District from such ecologically minded materials as organic cotton dobby, cellulose-derived Tencel and Enka viscose, silk crepe de chine, vegetable-tanned leather, and both felted and knit organic merino wool. “The greatest aspect of all these fabrics is that you would never guess they were eco-friendly,” Woo told Ecouterre in December 2011.

Other winners for 2013 are Tome for women’s, Ian Velardi for men’s, and Deborah Pagani for accessories.
