Its just been announced that we’ve won the 2013 ACE Award- Brand of the Year, awarded by the Accessories Council.
It’s an enormous recognition to win this ACE award. To start a company and watch it progress to the point that it surpasses the individual and is recognized as a brand is an achievement most entrepreneurs would dream of. I am fortunate to now be one of a team that has become a global brand
Its also nice to be in good company, past recipients of ACE Awards have included Sean Combs, Lady Gaga, Kanye West, Camila Alves, Nicole Richie, Mandy Moore, Heidi Klum, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Ricci, Jessica Simpson, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Stella McCartney, Emilio Pucci, Tom Ford, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, Valentino, Neiman Marcus, and Marc Jacobs to name a few!
In addition, I want to thank all the stores we have partnered with over the years, who have watched and supported the brands growth as well as you guys, the fans and clientele.
Thanks so much!
