While Atlanta is known for its rich history, amazing music legacy and world-class dining, it’s not exactly known for its fashion scene. But that doesn’t mean fashion in Atlanta is lacking. It’s actually quite the opposite. Atlanta is bustling with fashion bloggers and insiders. Not to mention, many well-known designers have brought their stores and boutiques to the metropolitan city, including Tom Ford, Christian Dior and Hermes. From luxury shopping to vintage and consignment stores, here is a guide for fashionistas in Atlanta.

1. Phipps Plaza

Housing over 100 high-end stores, Phipps Plaza is situated in Buckhead, one of Atlanta’s oldest and most affluent districts, and is home to Saks Fifth Avenue, Barney’s Co-op, Nordstrom, Tiffany & Co., Gucci, Hugo Boss, Giorgio Armani and Versace. The three-floor shopping gallery also boasts an AMC Theater, a food hall and extravagant restaurants, so you can take a break from your shopping spree and enjoy a glass of wine and a tasty meal. Phipps Plaza will also be home to Atlanta’s first Nobu Hotel and restaurant. The luxury hotel is set to open in 2019.

The shopping community features brick paved streets, a small park, trendy restaurants, sidewalk cafes, a grocery store and stores including H&M, Guess, Target and Victoria’s Secret. Alongside shopping, restaurants and entertainment, Atlantic Station boasts a residential area including condos and luxury apartments.

3. The Shops at Buckhead

Shopping Mall

Buckhead’s latest luxury addition is The Shops at Buckhead. Spanning eight blocks, the shopping district is not your average outdoor mall. Featuring over 60 designer stores and scenic window shopping, The Shops at Buckhead takes shopping to another level. Stores include Alice + Olivia, Tom Ford, Cynthia Rowley, Dior and La Perla. The stylish shopping area also features contemporary dining, cafes and Georgia’s first Shake Shake.

Located in the heart of Buckhead, Lenox Square is Atlanta’s premiere shopping center. The center features four levels with over 250 specialty stores including Bloomingdale’s, Henri Bendel, Prada, Pandora, Cartier, David Yurman and Louis Vuitton. Take a quick break from shopping and indulge in Lenox’s enormous food hall or one of the many world-class restaurants.

5. Ponce City Market

Shopping Mall


The largest urban reuse project in Atlanta’s history, Ponce City Market is Atlanta’s newest shopping area. Originally the historic Sears, Roebuck & Company, the building has been transformed into a luxury shopping and dining community. The space features 475,000 square feet of office space and over 200 residential flats. High-end shops including Sephora and Williams Sonoma. The space also is home to Atlanta’s City Winery.

Thrift and vintage stores

Thrift store and vintage store locations in Atlanta are pretty spread out. There isn’t one central location for them. Vintage and speciality store shoppers love the Little Five Point Area of Atlanta. The hip area features shops like Junkman’s Daughter, Rag-O-Rama and Psycho Sisters. The Virginia Highlands features consignment shops like Buffalo Exchange. On Cheshire Bridge Road, shoppers love Out of the Closet, which donates their profits to the AIDS Healthcare Foundation.
