Today I received very exciting news of my nomination in the Retail category for the Rising Star Award! This year will be Fashion Group International’s 18th annual Rising Star Award ceremony. All for the purpose of celebrating the “extraordinary accomplishments of emerging talents” whose creativity and vision are realized in the following categories: Accessories, Home/Interior Design, Beauty Corporate, Beauty Entrepreneur; Fine Jewelry, Men’s Apparel, Women’s Apparel, Retail, and Business Innovation.
I am extremely proud and honored to be nominated, especially considering who I am up against. This moment really put my 2014 into great perspective. From opening the world-first Frank & Eileen Shirt Pub, creating a magical home for Frank & Eileen in Los Angeles, to continuing to build forever-long relationships with veterans in the business, 2014 was an incredible year for me and for Frank & Eileen. I started this company over 5 years ago, with no real expectation of what it would become. I only knew that hard work and my love for what I do would lead me to this very moment. I am eternally grateful for everyone that has been a part of the past 5 years and to those who will be there in the next 5+ years.
Thank you. Thank you. THANK YOU!
I’d ask you to wish me luck, but I already feel lucky. Send me LOVE instead!!
