Wild Dress
Inspired by the timeless style of Southern women, Atlanta native Abbey Glass designs classic, tailored clothing with a modern twist.

The founder: Abigail May Glass grew up in Atlanta’s Ansley Park. She attended Central Saint Martins in London and the Rhode Island School of Design. After graduation, she moved back to Atlanta and started making custom evening gowns and coats.

The company: Abbey Glass Studios, founded in Atlanta in 2013. The clothing line includes dresses, skirts, tops and outerwear. “I love a great fitting trench coat, a full skirt in a lux fabric, or a fit and flare dress in a memorable print or pattern,” said Glass.

Favorites: Valerie Halter Top ($210); Leather Liv Tank ($385); Leopard Jacquard Skirt ($385); Joni Midi Skirt ($450) and the Opal Dress ($410).

Fun request: Swarovski Crystalized Silk Organza Wraps to match customers dresses.

Big break: Won a finalist spot in the annual Supima Design Competition at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in September 2012. The annual contest was created to give runway exposure to young talent.

Claim to fame: Ms. Universe, Olivia Culpo, wore my Poppy cotton evening gown to the Harvest Ball Gala in New York City.
