The 2015 Ragtrade Runway Show was held last night and yours truly was there to capture the sights and sounds of Atlanta’s biggest night in fashion. The annual extravaganza is the culminating event to a year long platform that discovers and promotes emerging fashion designers from Atlanta and around the world.
The event was held at the historic Georgia Freight Depot and featured high fashion looks by five of the southeast’s most promising designers including Zonia Santander, Brendan M. Combs, Sylvia Mollie, Zachery/Nathaniel, Natt Taylor and AAB Designs. Closing out the show was special appearance by Project Runway star and fellow Atlantan, Edmond Newton.
RagTrade Atlanta was created in 2012 by PR maven and fashionista, Angela Watts (10 Squared PR) and is done in partnership with the Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs and the Art Institute of Atlanta.
