Wine, Women & Wow! 2014 presents SPOTLIGHT ON VENDORS

RobinAllen -webWWW: Robin, many of us know you for your retail business, That’s Swank, specializing in beautiful vintage clothing – but you do so much more than that!

RA: I also work with The Gorge Magazine as their Fashion Editor. But what I’ve been really enjoying lately is acting as a professional Wardrobe Stylist and Personal Shopper! I love advising and guiding people to develop their own ultimate style, helping them create a perfectly focused wardrobe.

WWW: You are the best promo for your styling services – you always look fabulous, so put together!

RA: It’s not about designer labels, WHO’s clothes you’re wearing – it’s HOW you’re wearing it that makes you feel & look like a million bucks. This works even if it is just the outfit you are wearing to take the kids to practice, going grocery shopping or even gardening in! What you wear affects every aspect of your life – I show my clients how easily looking chic can be acheived!

WWW: In addition to individual consultations, you’re also offering a class soon?

RA: Yes, I’m calling it the “Cheap to Chic Wardrobe Styling Workshop.” It will be held at the Columbia Center for the Arts on Sunday, September 28th, from 3pm to 6pm. Attendees will receive tips, tricks and secrets to getting the wardrobe they want on the budget they have. They’ll learn how to stay organized, how to keep from being overwhelmed and how to face your closet head on with complete confidence & excitement!

WWW: How would you best sum up your approach to fashion?

RA: I’ve always loved this quote from Coco Chanel: “A girl should be two things: Classy & Fabulous.”

Tickets for Robin’s workshop are available through or at the CCA Art Gallery in Hood River. To learn more about Robin and her styling services, check out her website.
