The Fashion Bomb Celebrates: Patrick Robinson

Today's Black History spotlight shines on sportswear designer Patrick Robinson.

The California native and Parson's graduate was the design director of Giorgio Armani at the young age of 24, Senior Vice President of Merchandising for Anne Klein at the age of 28, and was then Creative Director at Perry Ellis. This is all before assuming his current role as Artistic Director for Paco Rabanne. Amazing!

Specializing in sportswear, Robinson counts Jeffrey Banks and Willi Smith as mentors and professional idols. Good thing we know who they are:)
Stay tuned for The Fashion Bomb's *exclusive* coverage of Robinson's next super cool venture.
In the meantime, a toast to designer extraordinaire Patrick Robinson!
