Elizabeth Kane Wing sees a lot of the “sweet and cutesy” Southern style. So in October, she opened Kane on the Westside to introduce some “punch” to Atlanta women’s wardrobes.

An Atlanta native with a business degree from UGA, she gave her edgy store her maiden name and turned the Kane family crest into the brand’s logo, which is laser-cut into steel behind the register. Kane carries tried-and-true brands like Vince, Tibi, and Rebecca Taylor, as well as lines previously unavailable in Atlanta, like Marie Turnor “Lunch” sack clutches and a line of silks by Otte New York. Wing’s latest obsession? Mignonne Gavigan’s beaded scarf neck­laces.

The Creatives Project

You don’t need to be a Rockefeller to fund the arts. Founded by photographer Neda Abghari in 2011, the Creatives Project underwrites emerging artists and provides children with arts enrichment missing from schools. TCP gives artists two-year fellowships culminating with exhibitions. In exchange, the artists participate in community education projects, such as helping students at Perkerson Elementary School design and paint a mural or Old Fourth Ward youngsters document their community through photos and video.
