Good morning, Lovelies! If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen me tweeting like crazy this weekend about my time at the Atlanta Apparel show at AmericasMart. This is my second time visiting “the market” as all the fashion buyers and exhibitors call it, and it was such a fun time! I believe the market kicked off on Thursday, but me and the girls (Trina & Lexi) kicked things off with the runway show on Friday evening!
The cool thing about the runway show at the market is that the clothes are truly “ready-to-wear.” Since these clothes are available right there for buyers to order. I can’t wait to see which pieces from the runway end up in my favorite local Atlanta boutiques!
After the runway show, we stopped into a fun party in the La Belle Vie showroom. During the Atlanta Apparel show, there are hundreds of temporary showrooms setup, but AmericasMart also houses hundreds of permanent showrooms that are open to buyers all year long! La Belle Vie is one of the permanent showrooms, and inside you’ll find not one, but FIVE awesome contemporary lines of clothing — Pink Tartan, Butterfly Zebra, Solow Sport, Kirribilla, and Vertigo.
You guys, the DJ at this event was POPPIN!!! Anytime a DJ plays Biggie, Nas, and “Shawty Swing My Way” within 15 minutes, they’ve got my vote. Trina was so impressed, she has to go take a picture with him. hehehe!
A big thank you to Yepser for inviting us out, and hosting the bloggers lounge. The girls and I had a great time!
