Nicolas Ghesquière and Stella McCartney are among the honorees named by the Accessories Council for its annual Accessories Council Excellence Awards Gala, set for Nov. 3 at Cipriani 42nd Street in Manhattan.
The honorees are nominated and voted upon by accessories industry members and retailers. The ACE Awards were founded in 1996 to pay homage to those who have made great strides in the category. Deborah Norville will again emcee the event, which takes place after the first Cole Haan-sponsored cocktail hour.
