Although far removed from the energy and drama of New York Fashion Week, Atlanta’s fashion crowd is gearing up for a fashion packed end to August and beginning to September.
Kick off a fashion filled weekend next week at one of Midtown’s hottest boutiques, London Calling, for the ultimate fashion experience from across the pond. Join celebrity stylist Olori Swank as she offers up style tips on Wednesday August 25th from 6:00pm-10:00pm. While you’re there sip on drinks provided by Ciroc and you take in some of the best styles straight from London. Be sure to RSVP by August 19, 2010 to [email protected]
The following night, join Deelite Photography, the Atlanta chapter of Fashion Group International, and a veritable who’s who of Atlanta fashion at MFBuckhead for Deelite Fashion Mixer # 8. Whether you’re a make-up artist, model, PR girl, or anyone in between, you are sure to strike up a few new friendships and business contacts at this event so be sure to bring your business cards.
After you’ve exchanged cards with the city’s movers and shakers in the fashion industry, head on over to historic Castleberry on August 28 to witness the debut of Azede Jean-Pierre’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection. Inspired by the delicate petals of spring’s first flowers, this emerging talent’s collection is a must see. Also be sure to get there on time to take in the stirring pre-show festivities including a behind the scenes peek at what really goes into designing the looks that will be floating down the runway.
Once you’ve successfully broken in your new YSL tributes head on over to the Loews Hotel for the premier fashion event of the season, Jeffrey Fashion Cares on Monday, August 30. Not only will you get a glimpse of boy wonders Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler but money raised at the event will benefit local HIV/Aids projects and the Susan G Komen for the Cure Atlanta Affiliate. Don’t forget to swing by the cocktail reception after the show and the official after party at Opera.
Be sure to plan your outfits wisely and get your RSVPs in order because this is one weekend you don’t want to miss.
