Our Story begins with Janet Brown the brilliant and legendary retailer who owned her iconic, eponymous store in Port Washington for 24 years. In 2007, a car accident stole Janet from her family, friends, and clients far sooner than anyone could have imagined. Julieann Stark a devoted client was so distraught to lose her long-time stylist and this gem of a retail establishment that with the support of Brown’s entire staff decided to open a new space to continue the legacy. Randi Newman, the dynamic, leading force behind Janet Brown’s sales, continues to sell and style. Jolanta Andrzejczak, shares her own unique sales expertise with clients and continues to ensure every garment is meticulously presented. Nina Raimondi, Janet’s head seamstress known for performing miracles of sartorial perfection, continues to lead the exclusive custom tailoring operation. New designers are always being added to the roster to keep the selections fresh and modern while retaining a classic appeal. In May 2013, we opened our second shop in Montecito, California. Bringing Julianne’s customized service and discerningly hand-picked luxury designers now to the West Coast. We are all about our customers. That’s what sets us apart. While our luxury collections are cutting edge chic, we provide service and attitude that is markedly old- fashioned. Visiting with us in our living room is like visiting a friend’s exceptionally well-edited closet, friendly, unintimidating and distinctive. Our devotion to finding special pieces for our clientele in a very personalized way is what has inspired the unique shopping experience we are known for..
