Billy Reid, recent recipient of the $300,000 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund (see original blog entry here), will be hosting a pop-up shop this Thursday, December 2, 2010 from 6:30 to 9:30 in Atlanta, GA. I know it isn’t a Nashville-based event, but I couldn’t help but give a shout-out to this amazing designer.
Here is the event information as detailed on the Atlanta Bearings: A Southern Lifestyle Guide for Men’s website:
Start your holiday shopping in a unique way this year as Billy Reid, in collaboration with Bearings, host a bourbon and bluegrass gathering Thursday, December 2 from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m.
GQ’s menswear designer of the year is bringing selections from his fall/winter men’s and women’s collection as part of Atlanta’s first Midtown Pop Up Shop (Dec 2-5). Come enjoy Woodford Reserve bourbon, live bluegrass by Cold Pond, and check out the Southern clothier’s latest lineup.
A few other regional artisans will be featured at the four-day Pop Up Shop including Bar Denim Blues from Knoxville, Savannah Bee Company, Nashville’s Olive & Sinclair Chocolate, Yee-Haw Industries, and Atlanta’s own Love Train Antiques (which usually only sells to merchants like Restoration Hardware).
