EVENT: 2nd Annual Haute.lanta Fashion Week(R), The Official Fashion Week of Atlanta
DATES: September 18-21, 2008
LOCATION: Atlanta Civic Center
395 Piedmont Avenue NE
Atlanta, Georgia 30308
Haute.Lanta Fashion Week
was created and organized by The Couture Connoisseur Fashion Network in order to provide a platform for designers to showcase their upcoming collections to buyers, consumers, and international media.
The city of Atlanta is one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the U.S. and has received national attention for it's professional designers, musical talent, and high profile celebrity presence. Although this is true, Atlanta's design community has been overlooked and there has not been a successful and continuous week of high fashion events....until now. We entertain hundreds of event attendees, comprised of the international press, store buyers, retailers, celebrities, style-makers, and fashion forward socialites, in which Haute.Lanta Fashion Week
provides an excellent opportunity for American and international designers to gain much needed recognition.
This fashion extravaganza is an annual event that not only benefits charity, but also brings a positive economic impact to the city of Atlanta. Last year, a Phoenix Award was given to the Couture Connoisseur Fashion Network for its commitment to the Atlanta design community and "commendable contribution to its 2007 beneficiary Save the Children." HLFW showcases the undeniable creative talent of local fashion artists and designers from all over the world
International Designers: For the 2007 debut, an impressive line-up of thirty (30) international high fashion, couture, and cutting-edge designers were selected to present their collections at the First Annual Haute.Lanta Fashion Week
including Lourdes Libman, Adolfo Sanchez, Andres Aquino, Kas Collection, Annette Bertin, Christine Philip, Adele Yen, Shan Keith, Adam Zyo, Elli Owen, Project Runway's Zulema Griffin, and many more. Six-foot tall beauties floated down the runway in wares that ranged from thousands to tens of thousands of dollars.
Diamond Exhibits: During the opening presentation, HLFW displayed over five million dollars in diamond-encrusted beauty products courtesy of H. Couture beauty, a New York based company owned by twenty-five year old million-hieress Taysha Smith-Valez.
This year, we are bringing Fashion Week in Atlanta to another level with bigger and better surprises in store. HLFW successfully integrates its avant-garde and couture collections in one of Atlanta's hautest venues, while utilizing exquisite set design, premium production, and unforgettable nightlife. Atlanta will quickly establish itself as a sophisticated fashion capital inspiring and rejuvenating design in the local retail industry.
