Seven Resortwear Brands To Check Out At Atlanta Apparel This October

by The Daily Front Row

Atlanta Apparel is back at Americas Mart from October 10-14, showcasing Spring Summer 2024, as well as Holiday/Winter immediates and Resort lines. Before you head to the trade show floor to place your buy, here are the dreamy vacation-invoking, transportive brands to know that nail resortwear year after year. 

Crosby by Mollie Burch

Size-inclusive Atlanta-based brand Crosy by Mollie Burch is the brain child of two fashion-obsessed friends, Mollie and Taylor. Confidence and color share the spotlight here, with a focus on empowering pieces created in partnership with organizations that support women, such as Wellspring Living which fights against human trafficking.


This brand’s founder began her career trajectory as a Naval Officer, before pivoting to create a company that would create matching swimsuits for the whole family. The result is cute suits for all ages, including printed swimsuits, bikinis, and shorts for women, men, and kids.

Walker & Wade

Take us to Bali! Or, failing that—check out beach-to-bar resortwear brand Walker & Wade, which is handmade in the Indonesian destination. It all started from one kaftan, which formed a jumping off point for founder Laurette Kittle to create her line which incorporate traditional Balinese ikats, batiks, and floral prints and custom bead work done by local women artisans.

Since 1991, this brand has adventure on the brain: whether that’s to the beach, or beyond. When it comes to resortwear, you can count on Elan for kimonos, easy breezy maxis, sarongs, jumpsuits, sets, and so much more.

Cabana Life

A sudden melanoma diagnosis at the age of 26 led Cabana Life founder Melissa to launch a brand that married lightweight resortwear with UPF 50+ protection from the sun’s harmful rays. Compared to a basic t-shirt’s low rate of UPF 7, Cabana Life’s pieces ensure you can be stylish and safe.

Lucy Paris

The Paris-born, New York-seasoned, and LA-based founder of Lucy Paris is adamant that you shouldn’t have to chose between a city edge and a sense of ease when it comes to your personal style. As such, the brand is designed for whatever a day or dress code may throw at you—no matter what destination you’re in.
