What's Going on with Abby Z.??

Proclaimed a godsend by the curvaceous and chic, Abby Zeichner turned out plus-size attire made famous on the celebrity contours of Camryn Manheim, Queen Latifah and Emme.

Magazines, newspapers and television programs featured her clothing -- known under the Abby Z. label -- as the long-awaited hip alternative for plus-size women. She launched a SoHo boutique and then a store in Roosevelt Field last fall, part of her plan to roll out 40 stores in four years.

And then in February, Abby Z. surprised many -- not the least of whom were contractors still awaiting payments for work done for her Long Island store -- when she filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation.

The company and its assets have been handed to a court appointed trustee for liquidation.

Hi Sharon,

Just want to let you and your readers know that Re/Dress NYC in Brooklyn has acquired a great deal of the remaining inventory from Abby's Soho store. We'll be putting out 2-3 new styles every Thursday, and blogging about them on our website.

Also we'll be putting up our Abby Z clothing on our ebay store over time as well.

Thanks for reporting on all the fashion news that's fit to print.
