Republic of Couture Grand Opening

Last night I attended the greatest fashion show I have witnessed in person so far in life.
The show was in the streets of Atlanta for the Grand Opening of Republic of Couture. The Grand Opening

October 5th, 2013

The owner of the store states R.O.C. is the new way of shopping. It caters to the way people live their lives now...and that is online. It's not just about selling clothes, but the vision is about making the shopping experience enjoyable, interesting and different. He created an ambiance integrated with social media. For instance if you post a picture on Facebook wearing the merchandise; for all of your likes you get a corresponding percentage discount on our next purchase.

The evening began at the VIP private party where we entered the store before the general audience could, to shop (a portion of the proceeds of the night went to AIDS Atlanta).
 The shoes included labels: Lamb, Liliana, Alba, Qupid, Mascotte, Anne Michelle, Styluxe, Wild Diva, D, Badgley Mischka, Charles Jordan, and Shoe Republic LA. The prices ranged from $30-200+

 I loved the jewelry! The varying styles all captured my eye. 

R.O.C. has children's apparel as well. You can shop for yourself and a little one all at once.

This was the first fashion show to be in the streets of Atlanta. They closed off two streets.
The store has already won an award of Best Fashion Destination of Atlanta.

“My dream is to create an all-sensory shopping experience for each customer, no matter their budget or walk of life…,” Gaston Garcia, Republic of Couture owner.
“I want them to walk away not with just a great item, whether it’s $20 or $200, but a great memory to share and a reason to come back.”
The store is located at 1075 Peachtree in a 7,000-square-foot flagship space on Peachtree Street between STK and CafĂ© Intermezzo."
