Monday night Saks Fifth Avenue, Longchamp and The New York Observer partnered with the KiptonART Foundation to host the high-profile celebration of the KiptonART Rising 2010 winners.
The incredibly successful evening began with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres while guests browsed the works of the 19 finalists. Following the wonderful musical performace by Orba Squara, Longchamp CEO Marti Carroll joined KiptonART founder Kipton Cronkite on stage to announce the highly-anticipated winners of KiptonART Rising 2010. Winners included Kiritin Beyer, Julie Combal, Bon Duke, Emily Korman, Avery McCarthy and Matthew Satz. Hosts for the evening included HRH Prince Dimitri of Yugoslavia, Gillian Hearst Simonds and Catherine Forbes.
