Atlantic Fashion Week falls down

This season's AFW disappeared, but there's still plenty of style to see.

Late Tuesday Atlantic Fashion Week, which disappeared without a word this season, announced it will return in spring 2011. Posted on its Facebook page: “During the fall we will be helping to promote any designers having solo shows.”

A wise move. Familiar AFW faces such as Katrina Tuttle, Akshay Tyagi and Chloé Comme Parris (critical darlings at Toronto Fashion Week), have moved, while other designers have found ways to showcase work that better suits their individual styles. Louanna Murphy, now back home in PEI, is producing a super-sweet clothing and accessories line with her jewellery-designing sister Hilary, called Dreamboat Lucy, available on Etsy. Last week Orphanage Clothing’s Kim Munson launched her new line at a more intimate event at Argyle Fine Art and Lisa Drader-Murphy’s popular Turbine Showcase happens November 5 at St. Patrick’s Church.
