On Tuesday, January 3rd , WWD announced the finalists for the Fashion Group’s 15th Annual “Rising Star Awards”. We are proud to share that our very own Deborah Sawaf, designer and founder of Thale Blanc is in the running for an award in the Accessory Category!
Karen Giberson, President of the Accessory Council remarked “What an exciting accomplishment for a brand that is only one year old! We are so proud to have Thale Blanc as a member.”
Past “Rising Star” winners include amazing brands as Kara Ross and Tory Burch.
Fashion Group members can go to FGI New York City Headquarters (8 West 40th Street) and vote for their favorite brands in categories as Accessories, Beauty/Fragrance, Fine Jewelry, Home and Fashion. Voting will take place from 1/6-1/16 between 10am-5pm. We sent FGI an assortment of our newest bags and jewelry, so we hope you can stop by to see them in person! (And of course, if you want to vote for us, we would be delighted too!)
The awards will announced at a luncheon in New York City on January 26th, with Isabel and Ruben Toledo as Keynote speakers~We can’t wait to hear them! We won’t know if we win until the FGI luncheon, but we are very honored and proud to have made it this far.
