- Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez
- New York City
Designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez met while studying at Parsons School of Design. They eventually collaborated on their senior thesis, which became their first collection as Proenza Schouler.
Named after the designers’ mothers’ maiden names, the New York-based womenswear and accessories brand is defined by its fusion of craftsmanship and attention to detail, with a sense of refined ease. Inspiration drawn from contemporary art and youth culture is combined with an emphasis on tailoring and the use of custom-developed fabrics.
