Fashion Stars

-------


Yesterday afternoon, leaders in the fields of fashion, beauty, and interior design braved the bitter cold to attend the Fashion Group International’s 16th annual Rising Star Awards. Held at Cipriani 42nd Street, the ceremony served to recognize the brightest emerging talents in a range of creative industries. Ralph Rucci, the event’s keynote speaker, kicked things off, joking that he was “happy to take a little vacation” from preparing his Fall 2013 collection. “You have to switch gears sometimes if you work in a profession where you’re seeking to beautify the planet,” he said. Paper magazine’s Mickey Boardman kept things light when he gave the Accessories Award to socialite-cum-handbag-designer Cornelia Guest. “Since I’m presenting accessories, I couldn’t decide if I should bring my Stella McCartney handbag on stage with me,” he laughed (in the end, he decided not to). Alexandra Mor took home the Fine Jewelry Award for her eponymous collection, which presenter Marion Fasel described as “the emeralds of my dreams.” And in the hypercompetitive retail category (Moda Operandi and Fivestory were among the nominees), Hayley Barna and Katia Beauchamp captured the award for their members-only beauty site, Birchbox.

The highly coveted womenswear awards (presented by Derek Lam) were won by Tia Cibani and Norman Ambrose (pictured with Lam above) for their respective lines. Tim Coppens received the Menswear Award, beating out Andy Hilfiger and Todd Snyder, and Meggan Crum and Mandy Tang were given the Karen Harvey Business Innovator Award for their site TheRunthrough, which connects fashion editors and stylists to product samples. “When we heard about this, there were major eighties dance moves going on in our office,” said Crum. And why not? The big winners deserve to disco.

The Winery’s Winners

-------

The early bird catches the worm—that saying was certainly appropriate this morning when, before rush hour, a crowd of industry insiders flocked to the Museum of Arts and Design for breakfast to fête the winners of the 11th annual Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation awards. The birds? Designers Tim Coppens, Sunhee Moon’s Sunhee Huang, Titania Inglis, Eighteenth’s Alexa Galler, Haus Alkire’s Julie Haus and Jason Alkire, Correll Correll’s Vera and Daphne Correll, and Dezso’s Sara Beltran. The proverbial worm? $25,000 grants to fund their Fall presentations at New York fashion week, starting next Thursday.

“This is not something I would typically do on a Wednesday morning,” mused Coppens, who launched his menswear collection in April. “I was surprised to win, but it feels really good.” The judges, including former Barneys fashion director Julie Gilhart, Gilt Man’s Josh Peskowitz, and Paper‘s Kim Hastreiter, were all on hand to congratulate the recipients. “We all know how hard it is to get a solid footing in this business,” Peskowitz told Style.com. “This industry requires new people to be able to put forth new ideas, and having this award ensures that process continues.” Meanwhile, retail guru Gilhart bestowed some words of wisdom to the newly coronated designers. “Show up and bring something different to the table,” she advised. Adding, “This is not an award that is about lights, camera, action—it takes time.”

That is certainly true for industry veteran Huang, who has been working on her collection for the past 15 years. “I started crying when I heard the news,” Huang admitted. “I tried to launch the line several times, but it was difficult financially. This is the third time and I feel like it’s the start of my career.”

The women’s designers are Correll Correll by Vera and Daphne Correll, Eighteenth by Alexa Galler, Haus Alkire by Julie Haus and Jason Alkire, and Sunhee by Sunhee; the accessories winner is Dezso by Sara Beltran; the sustainable design category winner is Titania Inglis; the menswear winner is Tim Coppens.
