Travel With Me To Atlanta Apparel Mart

Last week I flew to Atlanta for a quick trip to the Atlanta Apparel Mart. If you’re not familiar, the Atlanta Apparel Mart is a wholesale trade center in Downtown Atlanta, Georgia that spans over 4 buildings and over seven million sq. feet. Each building has it’s own specialty including Apparel, Home & Gift, and Rugs. I had been to the apparel mart before while in Atlanta to visit a few showrooms, but had never been able to spend an extended amount of time there. So naturally I was excited to partner with Atlanta Apparel Mart for their April market.

One of my favorite parts of the Atlanta Apparel Mart was being able to get a preview of the trends that we can expect to see for fall 2017. I’m happy to report that the retro trend will be sticking around at least through the fall months! Embroidered pieces are also still going to be around in a big way, as well as detailed lace pieces! As a lover of lace and embroidery, I was l-o-v-i-n-g seeing that included for fall!

Even though we haven’t even approached summer, I’m already looking forward to fall…simply for the clothes & accessories haha! On Thursday night there was a fashion show that shared a roundup of looks from showrooms throughout the mart. You can see some of the looks below!

P.S. a few things to note about AmericasMart (the name for all four buildings!)

If you’re a blogger: You can register as press and attend the mart shows! It’s a great way to find new brands, see the next seasons trends, and make connections with smaller and well-known brands! As a blogger I loved being able to see the fall trends before they’re out in stores and connect with some of my favorite brands and form a lasting relationship!
If you’re part of the general public (and don’t own a business etc.): There are two floors within each building that are considered “cash & carry” where you can shop and immediately take the items with you! You’ll get great deals on items that you see in stores! Floor 6 is fine jewelry (diamonds, etc) and Floor 7 are open daily to shop.

The weather was so odd while I was in Atlanta, not to mention the eight hours I spent in the airport due to delays!!! There was hail, tornado warnings, crazy wind, and sunshine…. all in less than 72 hours! So I had no clue what to wear, so I went with a chic pair of black shorts, a simple white top & my trusty denim jacket!
