More than 100 Council members came together last Wednesday evening to celebrate our 25-year milestone in the beautiful Luxottica building. Thank you to Vice President of Marketing, Chiara Bernardi and her incredible team at Luxottica for hosting us. The evening was filled with great memories, laughter and the energy in the room was nothing short of fabulous.

 A highlight of the evening, a special announcement from President and CEO Karen Giberson and Thomas Burkhardt, SVP of Global Brands, Marketing & Design at Marchon Eyewear, unveiling the launch of The Design Excellence Award, an initiative to celebrate outstanding new and iconic products in our industry.

 An exciting surprise and honor to three of our long time members, CEO at Echo designs, Steven Roberts, RJ Graziano founder of RJ Graziano jewelry and CEO at AHQ-Accessory Headquarters, Abe Chehebar will be honored with The President’s Award at our ACE Awards on June 10th.

 A special thank you to all of the sponsors:  Accessorie Circuit, Accessory Headquarters, Luxottica, Lovey’s Bakery,  Rosenthal & Rosenthal, Silver Promotion Service, VSP Global and Worldwide Libations that helped make the evening so special!



We all thank you for your unconditional support and dedication. We are looking forward to the next 25 years!
