I wish this would stop happening.
Abaete, the popular contemporary clothing line that started in 2004, has closed down. Though the brand stopped production in October of 2009, business was still trying to move forward and find its footing.
Laura Poretzky, founder of Abaete, had no comment.
Abaete was partnered with Payless Shoe Store in 2006 to create the first-ever designer shoe collection for the shoe chain. The label's last runway show was held for Fall 2009.
