NEW YORK — Fashion Group International’s annual Rising Stars luncheon’s intentions might be to expose new designers, but this year organizers actually coddled them.
Presenters in eight categories at the event on Thursday read aloud the detailed biographies of each of the 38 nominees, naming the celebrities they had dressed, the magazines that had featured them, the stores that sold their products and, in one case, an overview of the beauty company Skinceuticals’ benefits plan, which includes an on-site gym, free massages and a profit-sharing plan.
