The collection was bought in its entirety by Barneys New York. Proenza Schouler is named after the two designers' mothers' maiden names,Proenza being the maiden name of Hernandez' mother and Schouler that of McCollough's mother.

In 2008, Proenza Schouler introduced its first shoe collection, licensed through Giuseppe Zanotti, Vicini S.p.A. Later that year, Proenza Schouler launched its first handbag collection.
