“The positive energy this April at Atlanta Apparel could be felt across all 14 floors of permanent showrooms and temporary exhibits,” said Caron Stover, senior vice president, apparel for International Market Centers (IMC). “The Atlanta buyers came to market hungry for inventory and found an impressive scope of apparel, accessories and footwear offerings to meet customer needs. We are already looking forward to continued growth for our June edition.”

The April edition of Atlanta Apparel, which ran concurrently with VOW Bridal & Formal, welcomed attendees from 47 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico. Atlanta Apparel also continued to bolster its international attendance, welcoming buyers from 11 countries.

Temporary Exhibits

Atlanta Apparel once again broke records for brand offerings this April, presenting over 3,500 lines in 350+ permanent showrooms and 400 temporary exhibits. The market’s comprehensive apparel resources were marked by notable growth in shoes, resort wear, accessories and contemporary categories.

Runway Show Highlights Fashion Trends

Tuesday evening, 600+ Atlanta Apparel participants filled John Portman Blvd for the market party and semi-annual runway show, held against a backdrop of the downtown Atlanta skyline. The standing-room-only Autumn/Winter 2022 fashion trend event showcased 74 looks across young contemporary, contemporary, shoes and accessories categories, highlighting top trending colors and styles coming for next season.

“Our decision to hold the market party and runway show in the streets of downtown Atlanta provided an amazing opportunity to showcase the Market’s unique connection of culture and commerce,” Morgan Ramage, fashion and events director, explained.

Buyers and exhibitors alike were impressed by the scale, energy, and presentation of the runway show, with social media engagement topping nearly 100K impressions for that day alone.

International Market Center’s (IMC’s) five Atlanta Apparel markets feature the latest looks in contemporary, young contemporary, women’s modern, shoes, fashion accessories and more, plus specialty categories such as children’s and plus-size. The next Atlanta Apparel Market is June 8-11, 2022, (temporary exhibits June 8-10) at AmericasMart Atlanta. For more information, visit www.atlanta-apparel.com.
