Atlantic City fashion week did not miss a beat as Caesar's One Atlantic played host to an eclectic crowd, ranging from fashion veterans to first timers like Ava and her sister Chloe Roberts, who celebrated her 13th birthday in style.
"I didn't know it was fashion week here but when our mom surprised my sister with this present we were like so excited because we got to see the fashion in the area and try it out and see if we like it," said fashion attendee, Ava Roberts.
The sold out show was an opportunity for eighty models to sport and support local and international designers alike.
"We have models here from literally all over the world, Sweden, the Caribbean, all over the United States, we have designers from all over the country," explained Lamont Bowling, Executive Producer.
Designers who all came together in Atlantic City, a city looking away from the gaming industry to draw new visitors, all as a part of their campaign to "DO AC".
"Atlantic City is looking for a younger audience to enjoy AC and we think we fit right into that. Our demographic is 25 to 35 year-olds. A young target we think AC is going for."
Atlantic City fashion week is just one of the many steps the city is taking to becoming a design destination as well as inspiring many to stand tall.
