Friday's Fancies: My Atlanta Apparel Mart Experience

Last Thursday, I had the chance of a blogger-lifetime to attend Atlanta Apparel Mart to pay a visit the Judith March & Missy Robertson booths and take some behind-the-scenes pictures of the spring collections. It. was. incredible!

Not only did I get to see the market gals in action, but I got snap a few pictures of all of the new merchandise. After spending about an hour in the booths, I headed to a press conference with Stephanie Carter, Missy Robertson, & Christy Carlisle Smith. The Missy Robertson for Southern Fashion House line is truly phenomenal and hearing the story was a great way to get to know the process of how the collection came to be more intimately. I even brushed aside the butterflies and asked a few questions of the leading ladies. They were too sweet to pose for a picture with me after the press conference!

While there, I met up with the lovely girls of Village Boutique in Auburn and Cotton & Twine in Dalton. They were all so kind to give me a few "mart tips," and we had a blast chatting it up about the fashion surrounding us. And then...there was a fashion show. And I don't think I stopped smiling for the entire thing.

Colors, bell-sleeves, and embroidery strutted down the catwalk while I tapped my camera as fast as it would go. I was so in my element and loved every minute of being there. I left with a hug (!) from Stephanie and a day of awesome memories.

Be on the look-out at your local Judith March retailers for all of the new SFH goodies coming your way!
