I have been a customer and friend of Janet Brown for quite a few years. I was very saddened this morning to receive a phone call from a friend telling me Janet was killed yesterday afternoon in a car accident on her way from her home in Oyster Bay to the store in Port Washington. I was shocked. I had just seen Janet this week at The Regency Hotel in NYC during one of her trunk shows that she hosted several times a year. I had handed her a bracelet that she needed to have repaired for me. It is so surreal. Although Janet operated her business out of a small shop in Port Washington for many years most of her clients were NYC's society set. She dressed them all! Janet had a keen eye for fit and a level of taste and style is that very rarely seen. She was known all over the world in the high fashion industry. Janet I thank you for Kiton and Taher Chemerik and all the others!! Janet, my friend you will be sorely missed.
