Our trip to Atlanta was filled with excitement and anxiousness as we weaved our way through the Midwest country side, over the Smokey Mountains, finally making it to the beautiful city of Atlanta, Georgia. Our staff spent a long week in A Town meeting new people, showing off our fabulous clothes and trying new things. Go behind-the-scenes with us as we share our experience with our readers. 20150804_080725 Getting There: Our Team was used to flying the 90 map stl to atlanta minute trek from St. Louis, Missouri to Atlanta, Georgia but this year we did something different. We packed two SUVs and traveled with five people through Illinois, Kentucky and Tennessee until we finally made it to Georgia (after 9 hours of driving). It took a lot of time and energy to drive but it was well worth the ability to bring down last minute dresses and items for our stores. We also had some me flexibility within downtown Atlanta to do what we needed to do around town! prom bridal social line The Food: Our Design Team's favorite place to eat (aside from hotel room service) is, and always will be, the Indiana restaurant across the street from the Apparel Market. Haveli Indian Cuisine offered amazing, healthy food, delicious ethnic spices and even a little treat for model Lindsey as it was her first time trying Indian food. 20150809_203620 Highlights from our stores: - Fashion trendy designs with a great fit for curvy girls. - Showing the line as store owners requested. - New welcome folders for all customers. - Yummy Glamourtini with UV Sangria Vodka. - Our Step & Repeat red carpet was a big hit with our Authorized Retailers!

She was a very hard worked and was quick to pull people in from the hallways to they could get a look at our line. At times we were so slammed that Lindsey had to dress herself. She maneuvered ball gowns, fitted gowns, sheath gowns, and even mermaid gowns and pulled it off without hesitation. We were so excited to have our home town girl representing our company.
