As the Kentucky Derby quickly approaches we thought it would be a great idea to give you some inspiration from Paul Fredrick and a few emerging designers.

Our ‘Get Up is styled entirely from Paul Fredrick, they are  known for their patterned shirts and high quality menswear so when shopping for this years derby Paul Fredrick would be a great one stop shop.

The ‘Authentic Kentucky’ is the Southern belle look with a little spice. The look features a dress from one of our emerging designers Nat Taylor who’s collection is now being sold at Belk. As well as shoes from Italy based designer Edgardo Osorio, the look is finished with a Balenciaga bag and hat by emerging designer Rachel Trevor Morgan.

‘On the Green’ is inspired by the girl who is going to the derby to stand out. The top and skirt set if from emerging designer Larika Page who is also one of RAGTRADE Atlanta’s own. The head wrap is a great alternative to the traditional hat and still gives that wow factor. To round out the look , we paired these fun shoes from london based shoe designer Joanne Stoker.

‘Purple Rain’ is for the bold southern gentleman. The suit is from African Based designer Daniel Ayante, and while all the accompaniments are from Paul Fredrick.
