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!

    What is a blogger and how do you get in without a business license?

      Hi Jenny,

      A blogger is someone who owns a blog (i.e. the site that you left this comment on) and produces content on their site. I work full-time as a lifestyle and fashion blogger. Part of my work includes working with brands, many of whom attend Atlanta’s Apparel Mart, in order to share the latest fashions and trends with my followers. I do have a business license (I am a registered LLC business) for events such as this, however, this particular trip (the post that you read) was in partnership with Atlanta Apparel Mart. They paid me to attend and share my experience on my blog. The great thing about Atlanta Apparel Mart is that you don’t have to have a business license in order to shop at the cash & carry areas.

      Hope that clears up your question! Thanks for stopping by!
