Robin Allen is your your Friendly Neighborhood Stylist and On-Air Personality. She is your sassy, tell-it-like-it-is, super lovie dovie bestie next door. And, she is on a mission to build your confidence through clothing and get you living your best life…RIGHT NOW!
She began her journey in the fashion industry by earning her AA in Fashion Design + Marketing at the Art Institute of Seattle, then went on to design for the private labels of Nordstrom, Victoria’s Secret, Maurice’s, PacSun, Payless, and Zumiez before moving on to Los Angeles to pursue a career in film/tv/print as a wardrobe stylist, costumer and fashion show producer.
Currently, Robin has decided to take the Pacific Northwest by storm! With her confidence-building styling magic she has built and continues to build an impressive ALL INCLUSIVE roster of private clients from Emmy Award winners, Best-selling Authors, Politicians, Top-rated Podcast Hosts, Internationally Acclaimed Business Coaches, Wellness Gurus, Educators, CEO’s, Designers and top-in-their-field Creative Entrepreneurs!
But Robin’s influence doesn’t stop there. As well as being a talented wardrobe stylist, Robin’s fierce combo of a LOVE of TV+Film, being a national speech + debate champion under her belt AND being born a natural entertainer (eh-um..doesn’t hurt that her Dad was an actor)…made it inevitable that she would end up in front of the camera and on stage spreading her infectious energy to much bigger audiences.
So, it is no wonder she has also taken over Portland’s airwaves on not one…but two, TV Shows, KATU2 “Afternoon Live” and “AM Northwest” as a regular guest Go-to Style Expert, Red Carpet Fashion Critic and Lifestyle Brand Spokesperson. You can also catch Robin at some of Portland’s most glamorous + chic events as a Red Carpet Correspondent or perhaps as a Featured Panelist/Speaker at incredible events like PDX Women of Color: Beauties Who Brunch “Thrive Summit”, Bloom Beauty Collective: In Vogue: Inside the Industry, Girlfriends & Champagne, PDX Sustainable Fashion Forum just to name a few!
No matter what Robin is up to, she believes and was raised (eh-um her Mom served in the Peace Corp and continues to be an Activist in the community) that doing something for the Greater Good and giving back to the community is not just necessary but mandatory for the soul! That’s why she combines her love of people + fashion by giving back to organizations like Helping Hands Against Violence, Celilo Cancer Center’s Survivorfest, Columbia Gorge Pride Alliance and The Next Door.
She has also been a mentor for the local High School Fashion Club, Costumer for local theater productions and gives proceeds from the sales of her own organic t-shirt line, R.A. by Nature to various charities from Villalobos Dog Rescue to The Red Cross.
