Indigo Girls is one of the most famous duos to emerge from the Atlanta area in the 80’s.  From humble beginnings performing at local bars in Emory Village to winning the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album in 1990, Emily Saliers and Amy Ray have achieved much success. Together, they write, arrange, record and perform music which over the course of twenty-five years has become a vital part of the lives of their legion of devoted fans around the world, informing and rewarding them day to day. With twelve original studio albums, three live records, various Greatest Hits compilations, a Rarities and a Christmas record to their credit, the iconic duo continues to challenge itself creatively, over and over again, adding to a body of work that contains such contemporary classic songs as “Galileo,” “Shame on You,” “Closer To Fine,” “Kid Fears,” “Love of Our Lives,” “Making Promises,” “Get out the Map,” “Moment of Forgiveness,” “Least Complicated” and “Go.” The legendary group will perform this year at ICON HONORS 2017, an event hosted by AmericasMart to recognize notable members in the gift and home furnishing industry.

National Dress Day was founded by Ashley Lauren, founder and designer of the ASHLEYlauren collection, as a way to relive and celebrate our dearest dress memories. “I have fond memories wearing dresses and I realized that dresses hold such powerful emotions for women,” said Ashley Lauren about founding the national holiday. “I remember the dresses I wore to my prom, first job interview, first date, competing in a pageant, my first red carpet event, the list goes on. This is a fun day to cherish and celebrate those memories. To me this day is about empowering women to celebrate our femininity and cherish memories of wearing dresses. It’s the women and their stories behind the dresses that make this day so special.”
