pinkklipstick Out & About: Atlanta Apparel Day 2

 

 

After getting a taste of Atlanta Apparel through the Underground fashion show, I naturally wanted to experience more. I wanted to actually go and talk with the vendors and see the latest fashions that were being showcased. I also wanted to attend the informational sessions led by leaders in the fashion/merchandising world.
 
First up were the vendors! There were tons of vendors with unique items from shoes, clothes, accessories and jewelry. I met a couple of fab designers and distributors from the West Coast, East Coast, South and even Bali! I was so inspired by the people that I met. The energy, the drive, and the creativity moved me and gave me a high that I truly cannot put into words.
 
After taking in all of the fashions, I was ready to learn! I went to the “How to Open and Run a Successful Retail Store”, presented by Mercedes Gonzalez, Director of Global Purchasing Group. I learned a great deal and wanted to learn more than the time allowed. However, the presentation was enough to give me a taste and desire for more. I left inspired and the visionary in me definitely began to have thoughts of how to grow my own brand.
 
I could go on and on, but I am excited as you guys are to jump right into the pics! In addition to the photos below, I will be featuring two designers, Zacasha and Shawl Dawls in future posts to showcase some of the goodies that I scored from them. Plus, the designers of these two companies were so fun and fab that I have to share them with you guys!
 
Enjoy the photos below!

These necklaces are made of crystals and have a nice weight to them that clues you in to their quality.
