RAGTRADE Atlanta to Introduce First Full Day of Runway
Shows at Historic Piedmont Park
Yesterday, I attended an exciting press conference announcing RAGTRADE Atlanta, a group of local industry professionals who are passionate about developing a vibrant and globally recognized fashion community for the City of Atlanta will introduce RAGTRADE Atlanta, a full day of runway shows and presentations scheduled to take place at the historic Piedmont Park on Saturday, August 30, 2014. www.ragtradeatlanta.com
RAGTRADE Atlanta has partnered with Jezebel Magazine, Bauder College, Stila Cosmetics and CLICK Models of Atlanta to bring the business of fashion to Atlanta by discovering and promoting independent designers worldwide and providing a space for fresh talent to showcase their designs to leaders in the fashion community including buyers, editors, retailers and key influencers.
Atlanta is making it’s mark with television & film, music and the arts. I was extremely excited to hear about this effort in bringing FASHION to the community. Mary Justman, Chair Fashion & Director at Bauder College mentioned key factors in bringing this “long overdue” effort… “Atlanta is coming to it’s own… RAGTRADE understands how it’s done and they form GREAT collaborations.”
Hey YOU, this is going to be epic! RAGTRADE is currently looking for 6 more independent designers and will host a model March 11th!! Visit www.ragtradeatlanta.com for more information or contact the Designer Coordinator Jenna Wesinger.
