What started as a senior design thesis project for Parsons classmates Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez became a career-making moment when the duo sold their creations to one of New York City’s biggest department stores in 2002. A few short years later, the designers won financial backing from the CFDA, and began growing Proenza Schouler (the moniker is a combination of their mother’s maiden names). Today, the company includes shoes, swimwear, sunglasses, and handbags (most notably, their Proenza Schouler PS1 satchel), and consistently puts forth cutting-edge collections that send rippling effects throughout the style sphere.
