Owner Erica Brown.JPG

Erica Brown got her start in fashion by declaring to her grandfather: “Grandpa, I want to dress you, and I want to exercise together.” Decades later, she is still actively involved in both passions. On the heels of a successful career in photography and hairstyling, Erica is elated to open Dylan Star within the walls of her second home—Salon U—with the support of her community around her. She believes in taking a chance on what feels true, and is committed to striking the perfect balance between friend and fashion guru. She recently started wearing two-pieces; because life is short, and excuses small. Might as well jump off the high dive.  

Erica is a rare blend of devoted friend and truth-telling fashion guru. She is committed to seeing—and elevating—each client for the parts of themselves that long to emerge, and guiding them toward the clothing that will bring out their best selves. She believes in radical acceptance, and revolutionary playfulness. The only thing stronger than her sense of humor are her margaritas.

Dylan Star is the culmination of years of hard work and deep dreaming, and Erica is anxious to share her gift for picking out garments within the Santa Barbara community.
