Get sweet on Louanna Murphy at Biscuit

Local designer launches exclusive clothing line.



When Louanna Murphy won Off the Cuff, the Project Runway-style fashion competition last summer at Argyle Fine Art, she received a mentorship with Wendy Friedman, owner of Biscuit General Store (1661 Argyle Street, 425-5436). It was a chance for the NSCAD student to learn the business side of the fashion industry, and the result is Murphy’s self-named line will now be available, starting next week, at Biscuit. Murphy says she always starts with a concept (her gorgeous 2009 NSCAD Wearable Art collection was inspired by tropical bird plumage), but here she started with fabrics and a spring palette: mauve, olive, salmony pink, with touches of faux leather and graphic black and white. Biscuit will carry a range of separates that can be mixed and maximized into various outfits, but we’re really excited for her jumpsuits—Murphy designed an impeccably fitted one at Off the Cuff. Prices range from $45-$250.
