First, it was Tracy Feith. Then, Lyell.

Now, Daily Front Row reports that Abaeté, the dress label best-known for its shoe collaboration with Payless, has closed. Production of designer Laura Poretzky's collection ceased in October 2009.

While the other two brands mentioned had somewhat of a cult following, we were never really sure who actually wore Abaeté.

The mid-priced dresses were cute, but they certainly weren't life-altering in terms of style or design. And the fact that we didn't realize Abaeté was absent in the first place also says something about its lack of staying power.

But regardless, there's no doubting Poretzky had some fans out there. We wish her the best and hope she's making a lot of money doing something else.
