2nd annual Haute.lanta Fashion Week takes Atlanta by Storm!

Oct '08
The Second Annual Haute.lanta Fashion Week(HLFW) otherwise known as, Atlanta's Official Fashion Week, kicked off with a night of mixing, mingling and meeting.

There were plenty of celebs and most importantly models and bottles at VIA restaurant and lounge Sept. 16,2008!

A star-studded Opening Night was held at the historic Atlanta Civic Center in the heart of downtown Atlanta, on Sept 18, 2008.

The Red Carpet was graced with celebs and socialites like; Samantha Brown, of the Travel Channel, who also modeled that night. Real Housewife of Atlanta Lisa Wu Hartwell and NFL husband Ed Hartwell, Host of BET J “Tears, Shears and Beauty,” Derek J., actress Demetria Mckinney of Tyler Perry's House of Payne, who also modeled and celebrity hairstylist Natasha Simmons, all were seen on the HLFW Red Carpet.

On this night designs by Vivian Compton (www.naomanerette.com), Maria Harper, Essence and more were featured to an audience of tastemakers, trendsetters and Atlanta's elite and affluent.

The highlight of this evening was a Barack Obama inspired couture dress by Vivian Compton. At intermission guests were entertained by the sounds of Atlanta Hip Hop, Pop and everything in between artist, Prema Lanay.

Saturday held host to the Urban Chic Show, which took place at Luckie Lounge. This night showcased men's wear such as Sol Munki (www.solmunki.com). Urban Chic was hosted by celebrity hairstylist, Natasha Simmons (www.technique101.net), with guests like Freekey Zekey and the 730 Dips in attendance previewing the Dipset Nostic line (www.nosticapparel.com).

Closing night took place at the luxurious and upscale Uptown Restaurant and Lounge. On this night the attendees were able to view the silk swimswear line from HLFW creator, Layla K. If you have ever been to Uptown you know how great a venue this restaurant and lounge is, so it was a perfect fit to have the grand finale take place here.

Additional designs by the stylish and ever so creative Vivian Compton were also featured on this night.

HLFW was created by Layla K. also Founder and CEO of The Couture Connoisseur Fashion Network (CCFN). Originally from California and a designer, Layla K. moved to Atlanta and immediately wanted to jump into the fashion scene first inquiring about a Fashion Week.

Seeing Atlanta as such a major city, it was assumed an event of that caliber was already in existence, but to her surprise, that wasn't the case. After long and hard research Layla K. decided to bring fashion week to Atlanta, thus bringing Atlanta on the fashion scene with those kind of events.

This was the second year of Haute.lanta Fashion Week and definitely not the last. Though some may try to imitate and perpetrate, Haute.lanta Fashion Week is surely known as the Official Fashion Week of Atlanta.

So you missed it this year? Don't fret! HLFW will be back next year, with many preceding events to get you ready. This is one of Atlanta's exclusive events where the fashion elite come together and take the word “fashion,” to whole other level.
