The Miguel Wilson Collection presents its 6th Annual Atlanta Fashion & Polo Classic weekend, Friday, October 6 – Sunday, October 8.
The weekend kicks off with the Atlanta Fashion & Polo Classic Welcome Party at The Starling Hotel, Friday, October 6. The following day is the Polo & Pumps Day Party at The Starling Hotel and the Cocktails & Cigars Under The Stars event at The Thompson Hotel, which both take place on Saturday, October 7. The festivities end on Sunday with the signature event, the 6th Annual Atlanta Fashion & Polo Classic at The Horse Maison at Bouckaert Farm.
“When I created this event six years ago, I knew that it was different and it would become something special,” said Miguel Wilson, founder of the Atlanta Fashion & Polo Classic. “What I did not know was the amount of people that would support us, not just in and around Atlanta but across the country. Every year, we have so many people who fly into Atlanta just for this event and due to the support we were able to expand from just a one-day event to an entire weekend.”
The Atlanta Fashion & Polo Classic, “Where Culture and Class Connect” is known as an all-inclusive VIP experience, and multi-faceted event. The event has grown to incorporate multiple events within a single weekend, ending with the signature classic.
Guests of the 6th Annual Atlanta Fashion & Polo Classic will enjoy complimentary gourmet food options, signature cocktails, party tents, live music, cigar lounges, two polo games, equestrian exhibitions, and a fashion experience, while dressed in their best derby attire. With food prepared by Chef X and Chef Phil.
