Apparel Manager & Buyer

Donna has been a resident of Old Saybrook, CT for over 30 years. She was born in New York City and grew up on Long Island which is where she began her love for all things fashion. She has worked in the Garment District of NY in various roles from buyer, to merchandiser, to sales and marketing director. From 7th Avenue to Main Street, Donna has excelled in the role of personal stylist for her many clients who often say to her “you always get it!”

Donna arrived at Saybrook Home Apparel over ten years ago when she helped to establish the shoreline’s leading apparel retailer. Her innate ability and experience to find “what’s next” in the world of fashion is evident by her curation of leading designer fashion and accessories that you will find as she sets the taste in the Saybrook Home Apparel Shop. When Donna’s not working, you won’t find her in the garden or at the beach, this fashion hound is a ferocious reader, following the NY Times, Women’s Wear Daily, Blogs and more. Donna’s Friday Favs are a weekly feature on Saybrook Home’s Instagram Stories. Don’t miss her “must haves” of the week! #donnafridayfavs
