Shopping Bag

As Seen In...

Thank you, Hey Rhody! LEADING LADIES 2016

Nowadays, it’s too easy to find “fast fashion” – the cheap clothing that’s one aisle over from the kitchen supplies at Target, that lasts for one season before you drop it in the trash. It’s bad for the planet, and it’s bad for your budget. How do you maintain a closet full of great wardrobe staples if the fashion you purchase doesn’t last season to season, year to year? That’s exactly what Robin Barrett Wilson had in mind when she opened her boutique robin b. clothier last year. “I had always been taught the importance of quality when it came to spending money on my wardrobe,” she says. “Having quality doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the latest trends. I kept wondering, where do people shop, locally, to get great fashion that is high quality, represents the modern woman, and has a meaning or a purpose?”

The answer now is robin b. clothier, a women’s clothing, accessory and gift boutique on Main Street in East Greenwich. Not only is every item beautiful and carefully chosen, every item in the store is focused on making a difference. “In the end, I knew I wanted to curate brands, designs and items that are unique, fashionable, and authentic,” Robin explains. “Designs that have a story, whether they are Fair Trade, organic cotton, made in the USA, handcrafted or hand sewn, designed by women for women or philanthropically focused, the designs had to also make a difference. Along with this comes great quality.”
