Atlanta International 6thYear Of Fashionable Trendy Treats!!!

As July 24, 2012 rolled in quickly our team of passionate models, event coordinators, and directors were preparing for an amazing fashion show filled with a week of iconic fashion trends. From July 24th-29th our schedule offered style and class while delivering the experience to network with international designers, models, stylists, media, and sponsors. Our line up from the elegant Hotel Indigo to 200 Peachtree in effort to show our support for national charity organizations featured nearly 30 couture designers to display their latest looks. Since I myself am a shoe fiend, I was very impressed by one particular designer who's shoes were distinctively, not the average glass slipper...  You can certainly go check out some of this designers shoes online if you are looking for something to call your own! Ladies you know how we do "we want something no one else has" Imitation by Jerell is a perfect way to tell people "You ain't seen these before"!!!

The Pretty Academy school of  Fashion served the purpose to allow industry experts to show us how to make our fashion dreams into reality with a series of workshops with fashion, model boot camp, and extreme style make-overs by Motives for La La and the Beauty Shop. After training with Professional Model trainer Mike Jones in boot camp, I must say that I saw the models enjoy and express their improvement on the runway and behind the cameras. For the most part, some of our models unfortunately could not join us for our after party engagements but I hope that next year we can surely make them a part of the exciting night life here in Atlanta, GA. Our models came from all directions over the US and also from other countries their time and dedication to Atlanta International Fashion Week was most appreciated. If it wasn't for our fabulous designers such as Celebrity Designers Jason Christopher Peters, Sacred Heart Collections, Simply Beautiful Designs, Black Russian Label, Hyper Haute, J Rok Coture, and Nelson Arrington this show couldn't have gone on, but of course this list goes on and many others. AIFW was most amiable for all of the fashion trends featured. The kid models of L.A.H.A. for kids made the runway their own playground with extreme swag! I have to personally list two of my favorite designers were La'Moo Designs and Navoj Studios because when it was time to bring it they brought extraordinary in my book!

Most Importantly Thanks To Sponsors like Fashion In The City, Future Visions, Aveda Institutes South, Digital Fashion Group, and many, many, more.... My experience and opportunity to network with the best of the best in the fashion industry was an inspiration. A learning experience I will take with me as I grow more passionate about a leading industry that is ever evolving when it comes to the latest trends.
