Abbey was introduced to her grandmother’s 1940’s Singer sewing machine at the age of 9. The middle child of two accomplished doctors, left brain always came before right, but Abbey continued to experiment with garment construction and design in her time. After endorsement by Jane Fonda’s GCAPP foundation and encouragement from her art teachers, the Atlanta native began her formal fashion education at Central Saint Martin’s at 18.
Abbey moved back to the US to attend Rhode Island School of Design after her foundations year in London. Before graduating from RISD with a degree in Apparel Design, Abbey had the opportunity to work under Marc Jacobs and Francisco Costa at Calvin Klein Collection. She was a finalist in the Supima Design Competition runway show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in September 2012, which kickstarted her career.
Abbey and her team now work out of an Atlanta-based studio complete with a full service atelier and boutique-style showroom. Shop the Abbey Glass boutique at THE SHOPS in Buckhead Atlanta or in 70 other specialty retailers across the country!
