THIS IS A CONTRIBUTED ESSAY BY PAULA WALLACE, FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT OF THE SAVANNAH COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN (SCAD).
Editor’s note: Fashion is by its very nature exclusive but lately the fashion world is undergoing a shake up. Atlanta has long struggled to find its place in American fashion. Here, Paula Wallace, founder and President of SCAD shares her thoughts on why Atlanta is positioned to become the next great fashion capital.
Atlanta has always been a nurturing city for the fashion-minded. I have the evidence to prove it, at home in my childhood jewelry box: three small identical brass pins, awarded in my youth by the Singer Sewing Center.
This humming store and studio for the fashion-conscious was located on Peachtree in the 1960s, where the faint acrid smell of sewing machine motors admixed with the sweet exertions of other girls like me who took the bus downtown for sewing classes.
One assignment, as I recall, was to create a pencil skirt in wool and a blouse of patterned silk, with a jacket lined in the same silk. We didn't call it fashion, although that's precisely what it was, learning to create sharp, smart clothes we wanted to wear. I received a brass pin for each series of workshops I completed.
In my youth, Peachtree wasn't quite Fifth Avenue or London's Bond Street, but Atlantans have always cared about style and appearance. Nary a weekend passed by, for instance, without my mother attired in her Sunday best of hat, gloves, and pearls. From its very genesis, our "City Too Busy to Hate" has always been about movement and enterprise, where deal makers and churchgoers alike look the part.

My Grandmother Rinnie handmade my recital dresses, but we did travel downtown quite often to Rich's, where I was asked, at age eight or nine, to model in a few in-store runway shows. What a thrill! We were paid in clothes and shoes. I recall one such occasion, when my mother suggested I choose the black patent Mary Janes as my modeling compensation. Instead, I selected swoon-worthy red velvet slippers with seed pearls across the vamp.
"Oh, Paula," she said. "So impractical!"
How to explain that those red velvet shoes helped me float two feet above the sidewalk? Even as a girl, I understood the power of fashion to elevate the human spirit.
The city of Atlanta continued to nurture my nascent love of fashion when, later, during college, I worked as a bookkeeper at the Continental Insurance Company. I spent many half-hour lunches (and perhaps too much of my income) speed walking down Peachtree to JP Allen and Regenstein’s, where the miniskirt had landed with the weight of a hundred atom bombs. Chanel No. 5 and Shalimar mixed in the strangely cool air with a menagerie of professionals who knew how to dress.
I wanted to believe the numerous $25 sundresses I bought on these lunch excursions were a worthy investment: As a summer intern in a stylish and upwardly mobile city, I wanted to look the part, somewhere between carefree student (which I was, sort of) and purposeful career woman (which I wanted to be, definitely). Atlanta schooled me in the aspirational customs of fashion. We have always been a city of doers and dreamers. We announce our identities in part through a personal assemblage of functional and decorative garments and accessories.
I carried that lesson with me to Savannah in the 1970s, where I moved to create SCAD in the enchanted but cloistered old coastal city that made Peachtree seem like Paris — until our vibrant SCAD students arrived.
These students, from New York and New Delhi and points between, transformed Savannah almost overnight from sleepy Southern town to sartorial hotspot, every other student seemingly having stepped out of an Esprit or Benetton ad.
By the early 2000s, with Vogue legend André Leon Talley annually presenting his namesake honor to distinguished SCAD guests, including Miuccia Prada and Oscar de la Renta, I found my own style evolving. To honor our guests, I wore their designs. To honor our students, I listened to their desires, and one of those desires was to study in Atlanta. On academic study trips to the city, our students sensed the same aspirational vibrancy and entrepreneurial bravado that I had felt in my hometown as I grew up.
Originally, I hadn't planned on offering fashion at SCAD Atlanta, but a few conversations quickly changed my mind, including a chat with salon legend Carey Carter of Carter Barnes.
"Are you going to offer fashion at the new campus?" Carey asked.
"I don't think so," I said. "Why? Do you think we should?"
"Oh, Paula!" he said. "People in Atlanta are starved for fashion! Do it!"
Atlanta was ready for a preeminent fashion program. The 1996 Summer Olympics, a decade earlier, had announced Atlanta as the world's next great city, and the exploding hip-hop scene, with style-woke artists from André 3000to 2 Chainz, made fertile ground for fashion.
A healthy style ecosystem requires a vibrant cultural milieu, and when SCAD planted its Midtown flag in 2005, Atlanta was unmistakably ready to expand its reputation.
Today, nearly 2,500 students are enrolled at SCAD Atlanta, with 424 studying fashion disciplines. Nearly 6,000 students and alumni have been educated in the SCAD School of Fashion as a whole, including graduate and undergraduate degree programs in Savannah and Hong Kong.
This army of designers, including many from Atlanta, go on to work for Alexander Wang, Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs, and others around the world, while many more choose to live and create in the South, where designers like Heidi Elnora,Billy Reid and Alabama Chanin have helped export a distinctly Southern aesthetic to the world. When I think about these distinctly Southern brands, I think of the personality, detailing, and timeless qualities evident in each collection. These designer's creations have hidden details that only the wearer notices and abundant celebratory spirit — and they use upcycled material.
Atlanta is retail ground-zero for this design ethos, found at haberdashers like Sid Mashburn and the stalwart Guffey's and boutiques such as Abbey Glass, Ann Mashburn, and Reese Witherspoon's Draper James. In Little Five Points, Wish creates an inviting atmosphere with the best selection of athletic shoes and urban wear in a lovingly refurbished industrial space, while Peoples on Roswell Road offers a minimalist experience for maximal style. Westsiders flock to Steven Alan and Lululemon, while The Shops Buckhead Atlanta serves up Tom Ford and Etro for the international cognoscenti.
What Atlanta needs now is more designers, more ateliers. We have homegrown talent in abundance, but powerful and alluring design opportunities beckon young SCAD designers to Los Angeles, Barcelona, Milan, and beyond.
Atlanta is ready and ripe for a Cambrian explosion of fashion. Ours is a city of youth, diversity, and creative entrepreneurship, with a new generation of doers and dreamers and sophisticated dressers who understand fashion as a wearable commodity capable of being elevated to fine art. The time is now.
The legendary success of Jeffrey Atlanta has given confidence to many Atlantans that something new in fashion retail can be born here and go on to conquer the world — or at least New York, which is pretty much the same thing. (Future’s sneaker line with Reebok launched at Jeffrey Atlanta last year.) Stylist Shun Melson outfits the stars in some of Atlanta’s finest wares, and hot new designer Cedric Brown has captured the attention of high-profile customers from actor Joe Torry to Young Thug.
With one of the world's largest and most preeminent schools of fashion located in the heart of Atlanta, more and more young designers like Caroline Mae Heidenreich are eager to open their own studios right here in Georgia.
After studying fashion in Atlanta, multimedia artist Brittany Bosco launched a career as an Atlanta-based recording artist and entrepreneur with her own creative agency, Slug. Tens of thousands of fashion-forward musicians, performers, directors, actors, writers, and artists now call the city home, and now that Georgia is the world's No. 1 region for film and TV production, Atlanta is further poised to shape American style. Count on it: Wherever film is, a tsunami of new fashion is soon to follow.
Atlantans have always looked good, and our record-shattering entertainment industry, contemporary boutiques and ateliers, and fashion-conscious citizenry are a remarkable sign of the city's rising prominence as a fashion capital. Whatever the future of American fashion looks like, you can bet it will look a lot like the city we call home: Sharp. Smart. Together.
I've got the Singer Sewing Center pins to prove it.
In July, I was selected to be a featured artist in the NBAF Gala. The event took place at Flourish in Buckhead. The Yellow Floral Expression kimono and scarf was sold and auctioned off at the gala. Check out some of the pictures below.
It was an incredible evening of elegance, atmosphere, legends of the community, art, dancing, and more. All of the Atlanta socialites was there including Mayor Shirley Franklin, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottom, and Artist Radcliffe Bailey
In July, we did a pop up shop at the Essence Festival in New Orleans. The event was held at the Le Meridean hotel and was sponsored by the Love Freedom Movement.
"The Love Freedom Movement is a think tank for creative artist to live out loud in a space that allows those who aspire to learn how the artist started and where they see them selves in the future. This was their first year hosting in New Orleans for Essence Festival 2018 and trust me I am positive that it will not be their last. The NOLA BOLD BEAUTY BOSS EXPERIENCE was held at the prestigious Le Meridien Hotel on Saturday, July 7th from 2p-7p featuring veteran actress Vivica A. Fox, Fashion and Beauty panel discussions, Love and Relationship talk, Comedy Hour, Shopping, Live Music, Wine & Toast and More. This amazing upscale event crafted to elevate and stimulate consciousness for the every dreamer in the room to experience a taste of freedom. Everyone left the event feeling empowered and excited about the possibility of taking a leap and pursuing their soul destiny." read more at http://www.naturalbabydol.com/love-freedom-movement/
Last week, Cedric Brown Collections was a vendor at the I- Elevate Conference in Atlanta, GA. At the event, Vivica A. Fox led a discussion about Beauty and Confidence. Not only that she came by our booth and patronized the business. Getting two of our silk kimonos.
Today we’d like to introduce you to Cedric Brown.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Cedric. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
As a toddler, I grew up sketching stylish women on paper. By the 5th grade, I knew I wanted to be a fashion designer. In middle school, I cultivated an entrepreneurial mindset by selling candy and mix CDs. By 10th grade, I won my first art competition “What My Future Holds”, sponsored by Vox ATL. Going to high schools across metro Atlanta, my winning entry was featured in their May issue. I used the cubism technique to display a fashionable couple standing in the middle of a park, wearing my personal clothing line. Its caption read: “In my future, I want to be like Sean John and Ralph Lauren and have my own clothing line.”
Throughout grade school and community college, I received multiple art accolades, such as having my artwork displayed in a children’s exhibition in Beijing, China, as well as having my painting about gambling prevention featured on 8 billboards across metro Atlanta. One of these billboards was at the intersection of Whitehall and McDaniel Street, close to my family’s roots in Mechanicsville. The support of my mother and art mentors, as well as the recognition I received, boosted my confidence to pursue my dreams. It was then that I knew the sky was the limit.
Through hard work and dedication, I obtained my degree in Fashion Design from the Savannah College of Art and Design, completely debt free. After graduation, I completed design internships in Atlanta, New York City and Hong Kong. I later enrolled in some small business courses, which helped me to give it a leap of faith and launch my accessory line: Cedric Brown Collections.
I initially designed and sold custom-made scarves because it was the best way to showcase my background in both art and fashion. Since then my business continues to grow. I’ve added ties, bow ties, handkerchiefs and capes to the collection. Currently, my designs are sold online and in over six stores, such as Mansion on Forsyth Park Grand Bohemian Gallery, Ebenezer Baptist Church Gift Shop and Square Threads. We also do pop up shops throughout the whole year. Many consumers have been requesting new products from Cedric Brown Collections, making us confident that the business will continue to expand.
Has it been a smooth road?
Entrepreneurship definitely takes a lot of guts. It’s one of the biggest risk-taking adventures you can undergo, but it can be very rewarding. Yes, my beautiful designs have taken me somewhere; however, to be an entrepreneur takes more than that. You must be business savvy, be a good salesman, take some calculated risks, keep an open mind, maintain your persistence and work hard. Oh, and prayer works for me as well.
When I first started out I struggled with finding stores that were a good match for my product. For me, paying taxes was the hardest part of learning how to sell my art on my own. Throughout my career, my mother has been supportive. She once told me “If a person can stand out on the street corner risking their life to sell a rock, I know you can sell a scarf.” It gave me confidence that I can sell my own work, too.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
“It’s luxury streetwear. It’s the new era,” I stated on my CNN special about streetwear and the fall of the sagging pants trend. My business, Cedric Brown Collections, is the new fashion forward-brand out of the South, which boasts street appeal and more. We offer luxury, elegance, quality, and versatility. Our slogan “From evening wear to streetwear, CBC makes a chic statement” rings true. Sending a message through my colorful, bold prints I create abstract art that is made into limited edition prints on silk accessories Each piece of my eponymous collection boasts hand-crafted designs that catch the eye and refuse to let go.
The versatility of my accessories ensures that they can be worn for any occasion. In our trunk shows and video tutorials, we show our customers different ways to wear scarves including, but not limited to crafting a halter top, tying a head wrap, and tailoring your neckerchief. Our accessories come with first-class packaging, personable customer service, and southern charm.
From top celebrities, Young Thug and Wale to news anchor Jovita Moore, Debbie Tuff and CNN Commentator Dr. Jason Johnson our consumers embrace bold colors crave originality and are loving patrons of the arts. Even young, professional men are loving our one-of-a-kind pocket square designs! My work has been displayed on CNN, Jezebel, Sheen, The Birmingham Times and State Farm.
Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Since online businesses are becoming more and more popular, I don’t think it matters what city you start in. However, I do feel Atlanta a great city for networking and gaining exposure. With so many entertainers living here or coming here to do business, it’s a great way to get into the mix.
Atlanta is definitely the place to be for me. It’s my hometown, and I think it is the perfect place for my business to grow. As of right now, the cost of living isn’t as high as other artist-driven places, which allows me to invest more money into my business. The community supports its local artists, and I consider Atlanta an open market. If you want the best opportunity for yourself, you have to create it and put yourself out there.

The innovative and creative designs that complete the Cedric Brown Collection were carefully curated with versatility and class. Cedric Brown himself maintains an artistic edge when crafting each piece.
How it all began…
From an early age, fifth grade to be exact, Cedric knew he wanted to be a fashion designer the moment he found what the true definition of it was. He was inspired by designers such as Sean John. While attending Savannah College of Art and Design, Cedric had a multitude of internships in New York and Hong Kong included Sear’s/Kmart and Carter – OshKosh.
Even with vast experience, Cedric still struggled to find a career in his field. After taking classes at a center called Operation Hope, it helped him launch his business.
All About the Cedric Brown Collection
“I try to keep an artistic edge, very abstract with a painterly feel. It’s all about making a
chic statement. I have very classic and elegant pieces and can be worn anywhere.”
The Cedric Brown Collection includes high fashion and versatile scarves. These scarves can be transformed from a neck scarf, head scarf and possibly even a shirt. Made of 100% silk, the collection is safe to wear.
When you need jazz up an outfit, each well-crafted scarf will amplify and serve as an accessory. The rich bright and bold scarves add pop, from your solid colored turtleneck to your favorite suit.
Young Thug, Wale, Wyleaf Jean, and Angie Stone are among some of the celebrities spotted wearing the Cedric Brown Collection.
“I want to perfect and enhance my craft and continue to show my collections to show my definition of luxury and define the Cedric Brown Collection. Also, continue to satisfy my customers. Consumers have been requesting more items such as shirts and more traditional attire, so I would like to add more products to my brand.”

Cedric Brown takes on the fashion world
Cedric Brown, 25, is a creative soul. The visual artist and fashion designer has even received international recognition. In 2010, his painting “As the Twig Bends, So the Tree,” was selected for permanent display in St. Petersburg, Russia. His elegant apparel walked the runways at New York Fashion Week.
Flashback a few years, the Atlanta native had an ambitious dream but needed help to get there. “I’ve been scribbling women’s fashion designs on paper since I was a toddler. My mother who raised me all by herself had a unique sense of style. That’s how I really developed my passion for fashion,” shared Cedric. “By fifth grade, I knew I wanted to be a fashion designer.”
In high school, he took art classes and won several awards. Later, he graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design with a BA in Fashion Design, and completed internships in New York and Hong Kong.
His hard work and talent paid off. He got freelance work with a popular children’s clothing line getting amazing professional design experience. “That’s when I decided to follow my passion and start my business, Cedric Brown Collections,” Cedric said.
He enrolled in Operation HOPE’s Entrepreneur Training Program, which is supported by State Farm, after his cousin went through the program.
“My cousin saw I wanted to start my own business, but I wasn’t completely secure with the concept of running a business,” Cedric explained. “I immediately loved the program. I learned everything from how to structure and run my business to how to market and obtain capital.”
“I was surrounded by entrepreneurs along the same path. We all learned from each other, just as much as we learned from the program.”
Cedric Brown Designs is doing very well but the young artist is not done yet. “I would like to leave a mark on the fashion industry as one of the most fashion forward brands of the South,” said Cedric. “My designs are in some Atlanta and Savannah-based boutiques but I want my designs in every major department store in the South eventually.”
Cedric’s current situation is a far cry from where things started for the first-generation college graduate. He is thankful for the opportunities he was given and is determined to inspire and encourage other dreamers to work hard and live their dreams too.
“Throughout my journey as an entrepreneur, I started to realize I’ve become somewhat of a role model to others. So, I’ve returned to HOPE to share my experience with aspiring entrepreneurs,” Cedric shared. “My goal is to help young entrepreneurs by volunteering with Operation HOPE just as others did for me.”
“There are many bright, talented young people in communities around the nation—essentially our next generation of business builders who need the tools to make their big ideas come to life,” said John Hope Bryant, founder, chairman, and CEO of Operation HOPE. “We are pleased to empower young entrepreneurs, like Cedric, with the support of our small business development programming offered through our HOPE Inside model.”
