The Opening Celebration of The American Made Awards

Last week was simply amazing!  It started off on Monday with our fall Bridal Market Party at our offices at the Starrett Lehigh building in Manhattan.  That was followed on Tuesday night with a star-studded evening launching the inaugural Martha Stewart American Made Awards in Vanderbilt Hall in the landmark Grand Central Station.  Mayor Michael Bloomberg was there to greet the crowd and NBC’s Willie Geist helped me introduce the winners.  That evening, we saluted and highlighted ten up-and-coming entrepreneurs, who have shown innovation and creativity in their respective fields.  In addition to those chosen honorees, one nominated Audience-Choice Award Winner received $10,000 to further his business, as well as a feature in Martha Stewart Living.  As part of the celebration, there were festive cocktails and food, all American made.  And there was also shopping of handcrafted goods from around the country, including products manufactured by the American Made honorees.
