Atlanta Casts a Bid for Fashion Relevance


atlanta international fashion week biltmore

Last Spring I attended the Atlanta Fashion and Style Honors – an event designed to recognize the sartorial movers and shakers in the Atlanta metro area. The event left much to be desired, but I appreciated that there’s a core group of people attempting to raise southeast’s style profile.

So when I was invited to the Atlanta International Fashion Week, I thought maybe some of the aforementioned movers and shakers would turn up… not so. There’s another fashion week in Atlanta, called Hautelanta, with events coming up this September. It will be interesting to see who turns up for this one. Ultimately, the cream of each of these groups will have to band together to create something substantial, which will gain some national and, eventually, international attention.

    Hi, I love the website very fasion forward. I noticed you have an option on the home page if you are a aspiring model or photograher trying to break into the fashion world however, I am interested in becoming a wardrobe stylist. I have been a licensed hair stylist and make-up artist for the past 14yrs. The last shop I worked at was in Westchester California where I worked with such celebrity hair stylist Shirlena Allen who previously owned the 50 North Salon in Beverly Hills, Caifornia and Tiffany who is Whitney Houston’s Hair stylist and is currently on tour with her. I would love the opportunity to work with Models and Moguls or be reffered to any of your affiliates thanks for your time and hope to hear from you soon.
