Renowned designer John Bartlett is one of my favorite people on the fashion scene. We've been following him for a while here at The Discerning Brute. He's intelligent, fearless, savvy, and recently was chosen as one of three designers to win the prestigious Lexus Hybrid Eco Challenge, which will award him $25,ooo to launch his sustainable collection. The CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) and Lexus partnered for the second year on this competition. Marcia Patmos and Johnson Hartig were the other two winners. I am so excited to see what Bartlett comes up with.
