Accessories magazine is proud to honor the newest round of inductees into its 5th Annual 2015 Merchants Hall of Fame. FABB also honored this impressive group of merchants at its annual ball on May 6th, where the merchants received their plaques and took the stage to much applause from vendors and peers.
“Merchants are the link between vendors and the ultimate consumer. How they work with vendors in the showroom, how they buy for the season, and how they merchandise a story on the floor (or digital page), makes all the difference between an item or collection blowing out, or falling flat,” said Accessories magazine’s Lauren Parker, Accessories Editor-in-Chief in her introduction to this impressive group of merchants.

Congratulations again to all honorees!
It's only fair to share...
