NEW YORK — Even in tough times like these, there is no shortage of talent looking to make an impact on fashion, accessories, retail, beauty and home.
On Jan. 29, Fashion Group International will once again tip its hat to emerging talent at the 12th Annual Rising Star Awards. Tory Burch, an award winner in 2005 for retail, will give the keynote address at the event, which recognizes up-and-coming designers and executives in women’s and men’s ready-to-wear, retail, accessories, fine jewelry, beauty and interior design.
