Last night, we celebrated our 3rd Annual Fabys Awards at the Glasshouse in New York!
We started the Fabys Awards in 2019 as a way to acknowledge stylists, designers, hairstylists, makeup artists: those on the scene and behind the scenes making serious waves in the fashion and beauty industries. While we choose the nominees, readers vote on their favorites in each category! While voting is still going on online (Vote Here!), we decided to have a physical ceremony in New York as well, and partnered with Urban Skin RX, Mielle Organics, Parfums de Marly, True Indian Hair, and Initio Parfums Privé to bring our vision to life.
Our host Marco Glorious and DJ JFK kicked off the festivities, as we gave awards to Shoe Designer of the Year, Sybille Guichard, Executive of the Year, Monique Rodriguez of Mielle Organics, and acknowledged the 2020 winners in the room, Designer Khangle and makeup artist Latisha Chancey-Jordan. Haydee Searcy, Chief Marketing Officer of Urban Skin RX, also presented a virtual award to Makeup Artist of the Year, Erika la Pearl.
Guests dined on Spring Salad, Salmon and various hors d’oeuvres, finished off with cake from Doc’s Cake Shop.

After the ceremony, Bombers and Bombshells danced to the sounds of DJ JFK, and left with holiday gifts bags full of hair and skin products, along with Perfumes from Parfums de Marly and Initio Parfums Privé.
It was beyond beautiful to see everyone shining in the building!
Remy Ma stopped by wearing YSL boots, an Alexandre Vauthier dress, and a fur sleeve from Daniel’s Leather.

For the night, I represented for FashionBombDailyShop.com (of course) in an Oyemwen ‘Birthday’ Dress and SybgCo Giant Crystal Hoops. I slipped on a pair of Jessica Rich ‘Fancy’ Stilettos, and kept warm in a fur from Daniel’s Leather.
