NEW YORK — The accessories crowd hit the town last week as showroom events and soirees, as well as the annual Fashion Accessories Benefit Ball, were held at venues throughout the city.
FABB drew a lively crowd of close to 1,000 executives, buyers and retailers to the Marriott Marquis here. The black-tie event, now in its 14th year, raised more than $700,000 for One World, One Wish, a charity designed to help women and children who are victims of wars, as well as Coalition for the Homeless and No More Homeless Pets NYC. The event also honors companies and designers that have excelled in accessories, and this year’s honorees were Target Stores, R.J. Graziano and Marie Claire magazine.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
