Lloyd Brown Company is the creation of Bekah Brown, an alumnus of the Queens Biology program and Ryerson’s Fashion Design program. While Bekah found an obvious expression of the latter degree, she is still searching for an expression of the former degree, besides appreciating springtime blooms.
Lloyd Brown Company was founded the summer of 2016 when Bekah realized she wanted to use her skills and passion to draw attention to societal problems. She enjoys expressing herself while working to produce thought-provoking, socially conscious clothing.
