A celebrated American designer with more than 20 years of experience in the fashion industry in America and Europe, Patrick Robinson brings a unique sensibility and a fresh creative outlook to his designs, artfully mixing retro with modern and regal with humble.
Born in Memphis, Tennessee, Robinson grew up in Southern California where he began designing clothes for fellow surfers at the age of 14. After moving to New York and attending the Parsons School of Design, Robinson became an assistant to American-born couturier Patrick Kelly in Paris in 1986. He left Paris to work briefly for Albert Nipon in New York, then returned to Europe as the Design Director for Giorgio Armani in Milan. Robinson transformed Giorgio Armani’s ailing Le Collezioni line into a profitable international apparel company over his four-year tenure. Robinson, a New Yorker at heart, moved back for good in 1994, to become Senior Vice President of Design, Merchandising and Marketing for Anne Klein.

By 1996, Robinson was more than ready to go out on his own and started his own collection, winning numerous awards and named one of Vogue’s top 100 rising stars in 1996. His eponymous women’s label was picked up by Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman and Barneys among others. In April 2003, Robinson became the Creative Director of Perry Ellis Women’s Sportswear and then, in 2005, was named Artistic Director for Paco Rabanne.
Robinson has been a Council of Fashion Designers of America member since 1994. In March 2004, Robinson received a CFDA Fashion Award nomination in the Swarovski Perry Ellis Award for emerging Talent in Ready-to-Wear category — a fitting tribute to his hard work. Today Robinson continues to attract the eyes of celebrities and fashionistas alike with his eye for flattering cuts and chic luxurious style.
As part of the GO™ initiative at Target, Patrick Robinson will debut an exclusive collection of women’s fashion and accessories. GO, which provides affordable luxury from world-renowned designers, will feature the Patrick Robinson for Target collection at and in most Target stores nationwide May 6 through July 15, 2007.
