Proenza Schouler design duo Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez know what women want when it comes to fashion. The two were announced as co-winners of theWomenswear Designer of the Year at the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers 25th Anniversary Awards Ceremony. McCollough and Hernandez are no strangers to the CFDA Fashion Awards, which honor outstanding contributors to American fashion—they were awarded the Swarovski Perry Ellis Ready-to-Wear Award in 2003.

In September, the pair (shown here flanking Chloe Sevigny) will demonstrate how their aesthetic translates to eyewear thanks to a licensing agreement with L’Amy America, with their first sunglass collection debuting during New York Fashion Week.
