Hudson & Jane in Kansas City


I loved reading about Tickled Pink in Naples and can’t wait to visit Kathy and her fabulous selection when I am in the area next month.

Now, I get to share with you news about a store in Kansas City that is near and dear to my heart – Hudson & Jane, owned by Rick and Flo Ann Brehm.

My history with the Brehms goes waaaaay back – they hired me, at the tender age of 16, to work as a stock girl at the Polo/Ralph Lauren store. Rick recommended me for the job that I took with Ralph Lauren corporate in NY when I graduated from college. We reconnected again several years ago, when I started doing writing and marketing work for their store. Today, I am thrilled to say that the Julia Farr Collection is being carried exclusively at Hudson & Jane in Kansas City!

People all over Kansas City – and throughout the Midwest – know Rick and Flo Ann and trust their sense of style and knowledge of fashion. Over the years, they have formed many personal, enduring friendships with people in town who know that they aren’t just selling them a label, they want all of their clients to look and feel their best.

Together, their years working in fashion adds up to more than they would want me to print here, but suffice it to say, they know their stuff. Their stores (they have menswear – Hudson – and womenswear – Jane) are filled with established and emerging designers, both American and European, with a focus on fine fabrics and  craftsmanship. Flo Ann has a calm ability to spot the fashion trends and adapt them to the personal needs of each of her clients. Rick’s knowledge of fit and fabric is unparalleled. And you should see him tie a Windsor knot. It’s a work of art.

I am delighted that the Julia Farr Collection is now carried at this fine boutique.

Julie, we are all looking forward to having  you in our hometown this weekend for the Julia Farr Collection trunk show at Hudson & Jane!


For those of you in the Kansas City area, please stop in for a Julia Farr Collection trunk at Hudson & Jane this Friday and Saturday, April 5 and 6. Julia and I will be in the store with a selection of our designs from Spring 2013, as well as a preview of our Fall 2013 line.
