Atlanta Fashion and Polo Classic
Miguel Wilson, the visionary behind the Atlanta Fashion & Polo Classic, reflects on the event’s remarkable journey, saying, “
“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.”
Where Culture and Class Connect
The Atlanta Fashion & Polo Classic has evolved into an all-inclusive VIP experience featuring a plethora of events throughout the weekend.
Guests at the 6th Annual Atlanta Fashion & Polo Classic can anticipate a feast for the senses.
