Welcome to Hudson Clothier… haberdasher, jeweler, milliner and purveyor of fashionable goods, all ethically made-in-the-USA. Home to more than 70 American designers, this unique boutique features a full menu of stylish clothing for women, men and everyone else.
Established in 2014 in Hudson NY, Hudson Clothier offers an impressive selection of small-batch jeans, overalls, hand-made handbags, and men’s and women’s goods from underwear to outerwear. The store is the brainchild of fashion entrepreneur, Mary Vaughn Williams. Wearing many hats – proprietor, skilled buyer, smiling host – she welcomes visitors and locals alike to her collection of classic heritage brands and innovative young designers. Thanks to revitalized garment industries in Atlanta, LA and Brooklyn, among other cities, Hudson Clothier is proud to showcase quality apparel and accessories made across America.
Williams settled in Bali in the 1980s, where she and her former partner worked closely with the Indonesian community to design and import Batik clothing and textiles. Their business was wildly successful, selling to hundreds of stores from Tokyo to Alaska. Eventually moving to Hudson in 2003 they co-founded White Rice, a retail store named in honor of their clothing label.
Over time Mary Vaughn wanted to strike out on her own and develop a new brand. With twenty-five years of experience, a fashion business that would support American manufacturing was born into a storefront in historic Hudson. In 2019 she doubled that space and expanded her offerings to include more for men and women. Growing again, Hudson Clothier may be coming soon to a neighbourhood near you.
