Hearty congratulations to Titania Inglis, winner of the 2012 Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award for Sustainable Design, an honor that was previously bestowed to Tara St. James of Study NY, John Patrick of Organic, and Bodkin’s Eviana Hartman. The award, which comes with a $25,000 grant, is a major coup for any designer, particularly one as young as Inglis, who debuted her eponymous label with a lineup of rust-dyed, vintage-inspired playsuits in early 2010. Since her breakout collection, Inglis has come into her own, creating crisp, impeccably tailored looks that are as sustainable as they are immaculate.
Each year, Italian winemaker Ecco Domani awards seven emerging designers with prize money to help them stage a runway show or presentation during New York Fashion Week. Other winners for 2012 include Correll Correll by German-born sisters Daphne and Vera Correll, Eighteenth by Alexa Galler, Haus Alkire by Julie Haus and Jason Alkire, Sunhee Moon, Tim Coppens, and Dezso by Sara Beltrán.
This year’s recipients were whittled from a group of nearly 200 designers who submitted entries.
Mazel tov, once more, to Inglis, for her much-deserved win. We’ll catch you at Fashion Week next month!
