Back in December, we presented you, dear readers, with nominees in the realms of fashion, food, beauty, arts, and culture. Facebook campaigns, attempts at bribery, and mudslinging ensued. The time has finally come to announce the Sweetest Things 2007 winners.
And the awards go to …
Kathleen Hayes and Amy McCormick
Atlanta native Kathleen Hayes met her business partner, Amy McCormick, in college. The duo reunited in NYC and debuted a line of chic uptown-meets-downtown dresses this year.
With tinges of Prince, OutKast, and intergalactic funk, Purple Ribbon songstress Janelle Monáe introduced the first of four sets from her debut album, Metropolis.
Just Add Honey Tea Company
Modern-day Renaissance woman Brandi Barnes is a foodie, fashion stylist, and (most recently) tea connoisseur. Her Just Add Honey teas in flavors like green caramel are not your ordinary herbal.
The Chocolate Bar
Karen Britain went cuckoo for cocoa with the opening of The Chocolate Bar, her inviting Decatur nightspot where cocoa nibs, chocolate martinis, and fondue dominate the menu.
