Timo Weiland is a New York-based designer of his eponymous line, developed with his design partner Alan Eckstein. He originally became interested in fashion at a young age by observing his mother sew and work with fabrics, and after graduating from Vanderbilt University, moved to New York City full-time to embark on a career in fashion. After meeting Alan, they started developing their line, and since then things have certainly been looking up for the design duo. They were named members of CFDA's prestigious Fashion Incubator class of 2012-2014, have been nominated for the 2013 International Woolmark Prize, and their collections continue to receive critical acclaim and reviews each season.
