By now I’m sure you’ve heard the news that Patrick Robinson is out at The Gap. Most people were shocked to hear it but not surprised as the designer had never found his groove at one of the world’s most famous mall chains.
Robinson started out as a fashion phenomenon in the mid-nineties after graduating from The Parsons School of Design in New York City. He worked for Paco Rabanne, Perry Ellis, Anne Klein and Giorgio Armani (where he managed to make the line profitable and popular). He then went on to become a member of both the CFDA and Vogue’s 100 Rising Stars. He is also married to Vogue’s Virgina Smith.
