Laurie Perrone Fashion Designer of iconic American-made textiles and organizer of Hudson Valley Farm and Flea’s 2017 spring event
Laurie Perrone, A Hudson Valley-based fashion designer, has her own American-made apparel and home goods line created using high-end yarns and fibers.
Laurie sells her product from her website, https://www.farm2fashion.com/ which also explains her fashion industry background and the sustainability vision which fuels her passion for locally sourced and made products.
Many of Laurie’s beautiful designs are made from mohair and merino, and derived from goat and lamb raised locally. “Our high end quality yarns are created using Mohair, Merino, Alpaca and Recycled yarns from local farm animals and fields in the U.S. and knit in New York and New Jersey,” she explains on her LinkedIn profile page.
In fact she thinks raising awareness about local makers and artisans is so important she decided to bring an event she calls Hudson Valley Farm and Flea to Newburgh, N.Y. to showcase talented local makers.
Doing so supports her company Farm2Fashion’s mission to raise awareness about independent local farmers, craftsmen and designers who conform to the “Made in America” trend fast gaining popularity.
