Atlanta Apparel: incoming! This August’s edition of Atlanta Apparel will be the industry’s first wholesale opportunity to source Spring/Summer ‘24 (yep, we’re already there!) across 860 exhibits over 14 floors. Let’s dive in to what you need to know.
Atlanta Apparel August will take place August 1-5 at AmericasMart. As always, we’ll be filling you in on the must-sees across categories in the coming weeks and more about the new-and-improved ANDMORE Formal Markets event, but in the meantime, here are some highlights of the amenity-filled, event-rich, and education-driven programing for you to keep in mind.
First things first! The hallmark Atlanta Apparel Kickoff Party will take place at 6PM on Tuesday, August 1 and incorporate a live model presentation in the Building 3 Atrium.
Earlier that day, at 10.30AM in the Atrium, the Daily’s executive fashion director Freya Drohan will present a seminar of the need-to-know trends for holiday.
On Wednesday, August 2 at 12PM, Freya will also team up with temporary exhibitor German Fuentes to showcase a scarf styling workshop with scarf giveaways from the brand.
