A Rising Star


Fashion Group International named Vasken Demerjian, owner of Vasken Demirjian Salon (12 City Pl @ Trump, White Plains, 914- 285-0800; vaskendemirjian.com) as a rising star in retail at a recent awards ceremony in Manhattan. “It’s a prestigious award in the fashion circle,” says Demerjian. “The fact that it has nothing to do with the hair industry, per se, makes it even more meaningful. I am constantly working on innovative ideas—I want to make our concept boutique salon a force to be reckoned with.” Seems he is well on his way.
