The October Atlanta Apparel Market kicked off Thursday, Oct. 14 and continued through Monday, Oct. 18. The Market showcased spring 2011 women’s, men’s children’s, apparel and accessories and introduced dozens of new lines in all categories.
Newly featured this Market was the exciting category for swim and resort called SPLASH. Exclusive to the October Market, the category was located on floor 3 in the Market Temporary booths.
The Daily Strut, a fashion show that took place every day during Market, showcased the latest fashions that buyers could purchase at Market.
As retailers shopped for the latest trends and styles, they looked to fashionista sales reps and designers like Alessandra Chu from Ya Los Angeles for trend advice such as, “A lot of ruffles are still in [as well as] the rompers and maxi dresses” and “spring dresses are still hot” from Judith March.
Friday night’s fashion show brought buyers from the entire Market to the floor 2 atrium for the premier event: The Style Runway Fashion Runway Show featuring Canada’s Montreal Collections. As the headlining sponsor of the show, Montreal Collections showcased 30 looks from the spring 2011 collection of renowned designer, Samuel Dong. The show also included the spring 2011 collections of 20 different Montreal ready-to-wear manufacturers and additional lines from participating AmericasMart exhibitors.
