Inman Park News Release
Bill Hallman Opening Second Flagship Location in Inman Park
Atlanta--April 2, 2015---Longtime Atlanta, Georgia in-town fashion icon Bill Hallman is opening his most ambitious boutique in the heart of the new mixed-use development Inman Quarter, in the thriving historic Inman Park neighborhood of Atlanta, at 299 N. Highland Avenue, Suite Q. The organization will simultaneously close their smaller Buckhead location (May, 2015) to sharply focus efforts in the central city.
The current Bill Hallman Flagship Store in Virginia Highland at 792 N. Highland Avenue will shift emphasis to serve an evolving neighborhood community. With a more casual yet still refined approach, the boutique will offer moderately priced items such as jeans for women and men, designer T-shirts, day dresses, active wear, accessories and shoes.
The opening of the Inman Park space will enable the Bill Hallman organization to provide new customized services for male and female clients. Women will have interchangeable options: choosing fabrics, designs and detail for custom dresses from the exclusive Bill Hallman Bill-to-Fit Collection. Hallman partnered with Morgan CODA, an established maker of high quality, made to measure men's suits and shirts. Morgan CODA will have an in-shop department in the store where men can get measured, peruse fabrics and actually steer the creation of their custom garment. International and domestic ready to wear collections will also be offered.
Aesthetically, the new space is understated yet imbues an urban elegance expressed with repurposed fixtures and a touch of Moroccan accents. Since 1990, Hallman has shown Atlanta a genuine passion for fashion and wants customers to feel like guests being entertained in his home. He plans to serve these guests some of his favorite delights including Vietnamese coffee, healthy fresh juice and other refreshments at a built in bar in the store.
The 3.4-acre Inman Quarter development is the vision of JPX Works and South City Partners development. It is located just a block away from the pedestrian hiving BeltLine’s Eastside Trail and at the corner of Elizabeth Street, N. Highland and Lake Avenues, with the retail stores located along the N. Highland Avenue corridor side of the complex. In addition, the development offers luxury apartments and office space and will be a culinary hub of distinction with restaurants such as the acclaimed MF Sushi and new concepts from the owners of Barcelona Wine Bar as well as Chef Ford Fry.
Hallman says, "The growth of the whole area is so energizing, and I look forward to being part of it. I had a smaller design studio at the same physical location back in the mid 1990s. I'm just thrilled to be in the mix of the booming Inman Park area."
