Last week I had the opportunity to attend Atlanta Apparel, an apparel trade show held in Atlanta. You may have caught the fun over on my IG stories! If you’ve never been to a trade show, it’s basically a space for brands whether established or new to meet and share next season’s trends with retail buyers. I used to attend shows seasonally back when I was an assistant buyer for Bloomingdale’s. It was so much fun to get away from my desk and check out what’s coming down the pike for next season, discover new designers, and connect with the brands. Atlanta Apparel hosts contemporary, young contemporary, ready-to-wear, accessories and more. There’s even a runway show. In case you missed it, here’s a recap of some of the brands and trends I discovered while exploring the market’s 14 floors of fashion!
I saw loads of sequins and metallic pieces throughout the day. Definitely add this trend to your shopping list!
If you know me, you know I’m all about a flowy midi or maxi moment. So glad to see this trend around the market. I love this more polished take.
There was a Miami based showroom that focused on Spanish designers. I was dying over the dress below by Lulu. Can’t wait for it to come out this spring!
Florals for spring are always in style.
New dress brand One Pretty Time (O.P.T.) is launching this spring. Think feminine frocks in mini, midi, and maxi lengths and from prints to pleats to sequins. Below is a sneak peek!
If you are a shop owner or looking to grow your clothing or accessories brand, you must look into attending the next market!
