Fashion for everyone from LI's East End: Browder's Birds, Loyal Hana, The Styleliner

+-

Fashion has historically implied runways and red velvet ropes — winemakers, moms, farmers with dirt under their fingernails need not apply. Unless, that is, you’re talking about Long Island’s East End, where some fashion-forward companies are blatantly ignoring this conventional wisdom.  Check out Browder’s Birds in Mattituck for woolen wares. Loyal Hana by Sag Harbor's Shelley Suh is made for beast-feeding-friendly fashion. Joey Wölffer's The Styleliner hits the roads stocked with her signature saddlebags.
