ATLANTA (PRWEB) April 05, 2018
A record number of new exhibitors combines with new amenities and experiences to herald the new season at Atlanta Apparel. The April Atlanta Apparel Market—showrooms April 10 – 14, 2018; temporaries April 11 – 14, 2018—promises what’s new and next in women’s apparel, accessories, shoes and more for fall/winter 2018.
“Over and over again, top lines are finding their Southeastern homes at Atlanta Apparel,” says Mary Sullivan, senior vice president of Leasing for AmericasMart Buildings 2 and 3. “They see us as the ultimate gateway to style-driven retailers across our region and the nation.”
New showrooms CP Shades, EmpowerDesign, Lizas, Mud Pie, Nakamol, Samuel Dong, and VIKOLINO join expansions from Kendra Scott, Nanette Lepore, NICASA/Dreamcatcher, Pomegranate and Pretty Persuasions at the Market.
Gallery 11 West, Atlanta Apparel’s curated collection of contemporary brands, expands with nearly 1,500 square feet of additional exhibition space on Floor 11. New lines A/C Collective (Lost in Lunar, Unreal Fur and BOYISH jeans), EMG Denim, Mare Mare and Roberta Sher join returning collections Black Halo, Brothers + Sisters, Chan Luu and Simpatico in the inspirational brand showcase.
“We love and continue to show at Atlanta Apparel for many reasons,” says Emily Waldron, regional sales manager for Johnny Was, who recently renewed its relationship with Atlanta Apparel. “Not only is it convenient and the best way for us to reach our customers other than being on the road, but it has proven to be successful year after year. With a large territory like the Southeast, having one place for our customers to come and see our extensive line is mandatory for our success. The Atlanta Apparel Market is easy to navigate, a one-stop shop for our current buyers and a great way to reach new accounts.”
Atlanta Apparel’s celebrated temporary collection continues to break records, offering its largest coterie of new-to-Atlanta brands at the April Market.
“Our team is constantly on the hunt to find the latest and greatest,” says Caron Stover, vice president of Apparel Tradeshows. “Their expert eyes are finding the lines discerning retailers want to carry. It’s a mix buyers are not finding anywhere else.”
