It was a sparkling night for the accessories industry, as retailers, designers, manufacturers and a sprinkling of high profile celebrities celebrated 24 years of giving back. This year’s charities were the Lustgarten Foundation for pancreatic cancer research and the Wildlife Land Trust. A FABB achievement award was given to Target stores; Ivanka Trump presented a special award to Steven Hedaya of Mondani. In addition, Lorrie Frost from Accessories magazine inducted numerous retailers into the 2013 Merchants Hall of Fame.
The Fashion Accessories Benefit Ball was founded by Reenie Brown in 1989. To date, the accessories industry through FABB has donated more than $9 million to worthy causes. What could possibly be more FABB than that?
