Fishtown’s Toile Atelier is one of my fave spots. It’s owned by amazing local designer (and PMFP contestant!) Bianca De Pietro, who creates absolutely incredible womenswear. The shop carries other local designers that should know about, if you don’t already, and many of them will be feted tonight, as the shop hosts a huge summer party. (Ice cream and booze included.)
Former PMFP contestant Mariel Rojo will be showing off her swimwear and lingerie (I’m obsessed with the latter), and other lines Agashi (avant-garde separates) and Mah-Jing Wong (gorg dresses) will be featuring their brand-spanking-new stuff.
Also on hand: drinks, ice cream, nail art and music. The party goes down tonight from 6pm to 11pm at 1333 Frankford Avenue. Go there to meet the coolest local designers and shop pieces that no one else has (but everyone will want.) See you there!
