ATLANTA – Saturday marked the first day of October and the 1.75 year anniversary of Fearless Weirdos – a colorful boutique which showcases Japanese inspired clothing and vintage finds for those who like to keep it playful, funky and original. The approximately 1200 square foot gem is tucked away in the heart of Little Five Points and can easily be overlooked if you’re not on foot while perusing the popular entertainment district in Atlanta. Parking was stupid crazy so it took me a minute to join the spectators who were already entranced by the upbeat sounds of HERO The Band which had set up shop right outside of the trendy store. The four member group is comprised of young brothers who describe their sound as soft rock/alternative. The band’s laid back vibe fused perfectly with the amber sunset and the cool, outdoor temperature that reminded onlookers that fall was officially here.
After taking in the street festivities, I went inside the boutique along with AOM’s Karissa Parker who pointed out some super cute, modestly priced items to include a couple of vintage handbags, denim vests, flats and plaid jackets. The store even carries Japanese candies and sodas. YUM! Fearless Weirdo’s Operations Manager, Juanchella (Chella) Kemp showed us around the hot spot and introduced us to the boutique’s stylist, Tee Mott who was just as prismatic and charming as many of his displays. Chella was really excited about the celebration and is currently promoting “The Last Days” sale where items can be purchased for $35 and under until the end of the month.
Fearless Weirdos is owned by Alton Glass and Alva Glass, an accomplished brother and sister duo whose passion for music, art, fashion and entertainment is quite evident when browsing their Atlanta boutique. Alton is a Los Angeles based award winning film producer whose credits include The Confidant starring Boris Kodjoe and Richard Roundtree. Alva is a reputable fashion designer who’s had the opportunity to share her artistry with BCBG Maxazria Group and Elevee. Some of Ms. Glass’ clients include professional athletes, celebrities and business moguls. The boutique will soon carry the Fearless Weirdos private label where Alva will serve as lead designer.
