The 2013 ACE Awards were last night in NY…..and I won Brand of the Year!!!!!
Joan Collins flew in from London to present me with the award. Joan has become a huge part of our brand history ever since I featured her in an ad campaign that ran in New York during Fashion Week a few years ago. There’s also that Alexis-Alexis sandwich…Joan single-handedly changed the association of the name Alexis from a boys name to girls name because of her role in Dynasty. As a result, all of my junk mail comes addressed to “Miss Alexis Bittar”…. Thanks, Joan!
But back to the ACE Awards…there were so many great honorees like Hamish Bowles, whose Journalism award was presented by Tory Burch, Nordstroms for the Omni Channel Retailer award, Phillip Lim won the Designer of the Year, Rag and Bone won the Breakthrough award, and Iman won the Hall of Fame award.
It was so powerful for me to win Brand of the Year….it’s one of those times where all you can do is think, “pinch me!”
