Robin’s Story is the quintessential American dream! As a sixteen-year-old girl, Robin was working in the fashion district on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip, Robin immersed herself in the world of design and manufacturing of custom apparel for up and coming musicians in the late 60’s. Then, when in her early 20’s, through chance and circumstances, found herself in the unique position to create the first Tour Jackets for Elton John’s 1976 Starship Tour.
Word of Robin and her creation traveled quickly through the music industry and she would go on to make jackets for many of the top touring performers of the era, including The Bee Gees, Led Zeppelin, The Beach Boys, Pink Floyd, Warren Zevon, America, Peter Frampton, Abba, Olivia Newton John, John Denver, Rick Nelson, Heart and many others.
