Fall Fashion Week Takes Over Atlanta!

By: 1stLadyofPR

Every Fashionista and Don look forward to the Fashion Frenzy that September offers as Fashion's Night Out turns four and over eighteen countries with more than 4,500 events in the U.S. participate in the most fashionable week of the year. 

Atlanta has its own burgeoning fashion trendsetters that come out with their latest and greatest anticipated designs that will grace runways, cocktail parties and rooftops. Our 1stLadyofPR, Tamika Morrison, will be onsite as LABELatlanta emerge as the most talked about event of the week.  Kicking off on September 6th, editors, stars, models, fashionistas, and designers will attend events across the city for fashion's most iconic extravaganza.

I sat down with LABELatlanta's Cynthia Johnson to talk about what fashion lovers can expect at this secret location event.

TM: September is all about the fashion!  Tell Atlanta all about LABELatlanta and what we can anticipate?
CJ: Atlanta can expect a one-of-a-kind, spectacular event that showcases  local talent in the fashion design industry, and celebrates philanthropy and social media marketing all at the same time.  Fashion is an important thread in the cultural fabric of Atlanta and we are also a city that encourages entrepreneurship. LABELatlanta incorporates those same values. Add in LIVE tweeting, a gourmet tasting menu by Chef Taylor and designer STATUS cocktails and it equals an unforgettable fashion night out. 

TM: How did LABELatlanta come about?  
CJ: The mission of the Atlanta Fashion Incubator, a 501c3 non profit, is to support, nurture and promote emerging fashion design enterprises and that organization is the beneficiary of this event. I designed LABELatlanta to spotlight some of the extraordinary talent in our city and promote their fashion labels. We want to encourage these artists to grow their businesses here versus NYC or LA. They need the support of their local community too.

TM: How did you get into fashion?
