Marilyn Kirschner’s Daily Fashion Report blog today is all about the 10th annual Accessories Council Excellence Awards event last night, created in 1996 as a way to “pay homage to those individuals and groups that have made great strides in raising the awareness of the accessories industry. The purpose of the awards is to celebrate those who have had a positive impact on accessory sales during the prior year.”
Winners this year included Fendi for ‘Brand of the Year’; “O”, The Oprah Magazine, ‘Magazine of the Year’, Rachel Zoe won a ‘Fashion Influencer’ Award (you just can’t get away from her LA boho clones at the moment); Tom Ford won an award for Accessory Brand Launch; and Jennifer Lopez for the overall ACE award, which I can only assume translates to the award for the individual who has spent the most on jewellery this year. Suzy Menkes won the Marylou Luther Award for Fashion Journalism, and apparently turned up sporting a cane- necessary due to a broken toe but conveniently packaged as a new accessory.
