Today, I went to one of my favorite luncheon events in NYC at Cipriani 42nd Street, Fashion Group International's Rising Stars Luncheon. The Rising Stars Luncheon honors emerging designers in an array of categories including: interior design, retail, fine jewelry, womenswear, menswear, accessories, beauty/fragrance corporate, beauty/fragrance entrepreneur and the Karen Harvey Business Innovator Award.
All of the honorees were creative, inspiring and companies to watch. For a complete list of the winners, here is a recap from Women's Wear Daily:
