As a representative for the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation, Robert Verdi will bring his fashion expertise to this year's Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation shows and events.
Now in its eighth year, the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation is proud to recognize the seven recipients of the 2009 awards: Cushnie et Ochs, Lyn Devon, Matthew Ames, and OHNE TITEL in the women's design category; CORPUS in the men's design category; and Monique Péan in the accessories category.
