Style Insider: Larika Page
Charleston Fashion Week has a new belle for this year’s ball: Larika Page. The Lithia Springs resident entered the aughts as an accounting analyst at Ryder but exited them as one of Atlanta’s top rising designers.
Hot Shop: Emerlyn & Ester
Celebrity boutiques are usually hit or miss. Usher ex Tameka Raymond’s ever-expanding, Beulah-loving Estella in Roswell was a hit. Real Housewife Kandi Burruss’s Local Celebrity–carrying Tags in Smyrna wasn’t. Emerlyn & Ester shows promise.
Formalities: Rik Ducar
If you see an actor donning Halston at the Oscars on the 27th, he may have gotten the outfit from the Los Angeles branch of Rik Ducar.
Hot Shop: Vetted
With her hair still pulled back into her signature tight bun, April Wilkins has returned. A ten-year veteran of Saks, the PR doyenne left Atlanta for South Florida three years ago, but a retail shake-up on East Paces brought her back to Buckhead.
Hot Shop: Southern Soles
“Faith, Family, Friends,” reads a placard in the stockroom of Southern Soles. The first indie shoe boutique to hit the Avenue East Cobb—the area’s upscale strip mall—became Sage’s neighbor in August, and those three words make an adequate slogan for the family-run shop.
Hot Shop: Ann Mashburn
Sid Mashburn opened his namesake shop on the Westside three years ago. The men’s boutique is a sartorial menagerie—juxtaposing silk tartan ties with Levi’s 501 Original jeans—that has become an institution among Atlanta’s dapper gents. But Mashburn, as it turns out, is a family-run brand.
Reality Roundup: Project Runway

Hot Shop: Wear
North Fulton shoppers can now purchase NSF military jackets, Tucker camis, Genetic Denim lightweight jeans, chunky knit sweaters from Line, and Free City sweats right in their own backyard.
Style Insider: Tian Justman
Working out of a 1,500-square-foot former cotton gin factory turned into a Westside studio, Tian Justman has cultivated a name for herself in the upscale world of socialites and CEOs as a designer of custom dresses. Come October, she will have her own ready-to-wear line. The Conyers native grew up surrounded by fashion.
Hot Shop: The Beehive
Beehive Co-op, an innovative shop that won fans with its handmade apparel and accessories, shut its Brookwood doors in March. However, its high-end yet affordable DIY concept has been revived and updated as the Beehive, now in the Edgewood Retail District, just shy of Little Five.
