It’s no surprise that New York–based designer Miles Redd, an Atlanta native, is currently crushing on the big and the bold, the graphic and traditional, the dramatic and cinematic (after all, he was a film major). His new collection with Atlanta-based Ballard Designs is a reflection of this eclectic, fantastical vision.
This week, Atlanta welcomes some big-name fashion and design visionaries. Today through Thursday, SCAD will host the 11th annual SCADstyle—a weeklong event of panels, talks, and presentations at the art college’s campuses in Atlanta, Savannah, and Hong Kong. Events are free and open to the public.
Atlanta is landing its own museum to display SCAD’s many fashion exhibitions. Opening in Midtown on October 2, it will include a 10,000-square-foot gallery space, which kicks off with an adaptation of the Oscar de la Renta exhibition we ogled this spring in Savannah.
Christy Plott Redd says she likes to take the fancy out of fashion, but on a recent afternoon in Manhattan—her auburn hair falling in carefully curled waves beneath a mink hat, her eyelashes pressed into thick half-moons over shadowed lids—the fancy was very much on display. She wheeled behind her a suitcase the size of a small car. Inside were dozens of alligator skins, samples she was toting around to sell to big-name fashion designers.
