Anne Barge opened a new atelier in Atlanta today, December 8, 2017. It is the first showroom under the ownership of Shawne Jacobs, though creative director and founder Anne Barge Clegg previously had two flagship salons in Atlanta, where the design house is based. In addition to the timeless wedding dresses, evening gowns from the fashion line will also be sold at the atelier. The design studio is next to the store, which allows guests to see the creative process behind each gown.

Befitting the definitive aesthetic – classic with a modern twist – of Anne Barge, the 1,500-square-foot showroom includes an elegant white rotunda with two adjoining rooms. The neutral color palette of whites, greys, blacks, and metallics allow the furniture and objets d’art to make a beautiful minimalist statement without pulling focus from the gowns.

“The new Anne Barge Atelier was designed with the modern woman in mind,” says Shawne Jacobs. “Whether she is looking for a wedding dress, an evening gown, or a special occasion outfit, the Anne Barge customer will not only be able to find her dream dress here, but she will also experience unsurpassed customer service.” Indeed, customers of the atelier – which is by appointment only – will receive VIP amenities. Erin Krut, the Director of Retail Operations at the showroom, will offer an initial consultation for shoppers. On-site alterations are also available for those who purchase a gown at the atelier. Anne Barge brides will also receive luxury gift bags filled with an Anne Barge sketch of their dress, a silky bridal robe, a custom wooden hanger, and wedding favors from Atlanta-based wedding vendors.

Anne Barge Atelier can be found at 120 Interstate N Parkway, Atlanta, Georgia 30339. Brides can call 404.873.8070 to make an appointment.
