ATLANTA INTERNATIONAL FASHION WEEK
We know it’s been almost a week since we last blogged about our happenings but trust, we have lots to update you on this week. AIFW recently came to a close and the TPR team stayed busy around the clock covering events, networking, and uncovering new talent in modeling and design 🙂
July 24th-29th Atlanta was graced by the presence of models, designers, and stylists alike. With the opening ceremonies at Buckhead Bottle Bar, attendees had the opportunity to eat, drink, and mingle with established and up & coming names in fashion. Just to name a few: Simply Beautiful Designs, Jason C Peters, G. Destin, Luichiny Shoes, AguaViva Swimwear and Sacred Heart Collections.
After the ceremonies the week continued with showcases, runway shows, tours, interviews and photo-shoots. Many of the designers we spoke with that came from out-of-state were telling us how much they loved Atlanta and enjoyed touring the city. The question we heard the most was “what should we see first?” and you know for us being a publication for the city we had plenty to suggest 🙂 Even though we named a few things to do we were constantly questioned about the Georgia Aquarium. Which is good because who doesn’t like our aquarium? (You know it’s the best).
We were very pleased to meet all of the models, designers, and photographers we came across during Fashion Week. Everyone was extremely nice and approachable which makes the atmosphere at events even more fun and relaxing. Because AIFW was 5 days long we will have a massive spread on this in our next issue so look forward to that! 🙂 We have a few pictures to share with you today and over time we may show you a few more (maybe 🙂 ) and a sneak peek at our photo-shoot with Simply Beautiful Designs.
Take care and stay fashionable 🙂
