I had the opportunity recently to attend Atlantic City Fashion Week from February 28th through March 2nd. The event was held at the Pier Shops at Caesar’s, which is a beautiful building right on the ocean in Atlantic City. The event brought out designers from all over. The atmosphere at the event was just fun and energetic all weekend!
The first night of the event featured ready-to-wear and plus-size designs. The first few designers specialized in kids wear. The designs were adorable and so were the models. One of the crowds’ favorites was Yallipop who incorprated bright colors and fun tutus in their line.
Students from the Art Institute of Philadelphia also showcased some of their work in the show. There were a lot of really talented designers. My personal favorite of the night was Tirusha Dave. Tirusha is the Editor-in-chief of Bravura magazine. She debuted her resort collection at Atlantic City fashion week. Her collection included a lot of bright colors, fun prints, and just an overall unique collection ready to wear on your next vacation.
Day two of the event was Couture. The venue was sold-out and the crowd was buzzing with excitement for the designers. Well-known designers such as Tiffany&Co and Michael Kors were the highlights as they debuted some beautiful clothing and accessories. Also, previous contestants on the popular reality show, Project Runway, showed their collections. This included Helen Castillo, Lantie Foster, and Dom Streater.
My favorite collection of this night had to be Lina Teixeira. Her designs were very couture and her use of accessories was just fabulous. Other designers from this night included Ketelyn Hartm Sharon Cox Cole, Zathan Marcs, and many more. The event was organized very well and the venue was perfect.
Atlantic City fashion week will be held again in the fall for Spring/Summer 2015 collections on September 25th through the 27th at Bally’s Hotel and Casino. It’s definitely an event you don’t want to miss out on!
