Ecco Domani adding sustainability to Fashion program

Ecco Domani is adding "green" to its annual Fashion Foundation program.

The winemaker kicked off the eighth season of the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation on Monday. The initiative provides emerging designers in women's wear, men's wear and accessories design with a $25,000 grant toward their fashion week presentation. As in previous years, Ecco Domani will award four women's wear, one men's wear and one accessories award.

For the 2009 edition, the company is adding a sustainable design category to its lineup, which is being made available to a women's or men's wear apparel designer who, through their work, is committed to the environment, social equity and economic viability.
