Based in New York, Designer Julie Brown is known for her vibrant colors, lush fabrics, and eye-catching patterns portrayed throughout her animated lifestyle collection of ready-to-wear clothing and accessories designed for special occasions. Raised in a family of artists, Brown was surrounded by art and fashion her entire life and has had a passion for design since she was a child. She began her career as a merchandiser at major fashion brands such as Ralph Lauren and Anne Klein and drew inspiration from the awe and creative buzz found in these projects to further advance her career. Through her work in merchandising, she gained an impeccable eye for high-end fabrics and unique patterns which lead her to the creation of Julie Brown.
Since the inception of Julie Brown, the collection has reflected Brown’s love for creating designs for her favorite people: her daughters, girlfriends, colleagues and mother, evolving into the well known brand it is today. Launching with only seven dress styles in 2001, the collection graced the floors of Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdales among many other renowned retailers. Brown leaves no fashionista behind and offers a wardrobe that women can count on through all stages of life. Through its success, the line quickly expanded from patterned dresses into a full collection of accessories, women’s clothing, and ‘mommy and me’ apparel that illuminates sunshine through design and combine current trends with a subtle air of retro fashion forward style. Julie Brown offers an energized lifestyle collection in which each piece speaks for itself; no additions needed.
