We will continue to bring you Homecoming stories as we “stay clean and quarantine!” We present you with “Fashion, Business and CONFIDENCE with Robin H.” Episode #30 CEO and Creative Director of MODEL ATELIER and CONFIDENCE Apparel, Robin Harris, is putting her stamp on the fashion world. A former fashion model represented by Ford Models, Robin has traveled the world donning luxury clothing that fit her tall frame on the runway, but as soon as she stepped off the runway the same fit and design she became accustomed to was not available in the department stores. She realized that luxury brands didn't produce apparel for the tall female consumer. With an MBA in International Business, Robin decided to create a business that filled the void and MODEL ATELIER was born. MODEL ATELIER's focus on designing classic and elegant pieces for elongated frames relieved the frustrations that tall women have when it comes to finding stylish clothes that are the perfect fit and length. After creating Model Atelier, Robin still felt a need to do something that could have an impact on youth in areas like, North Lawndale, the inner-city Chicago area she was born. As a result Robin created CONFIDENCE Apparel, a young contemporary apparel brand whose mission is to empower young women and men of all shapes and sizes to love themselves as they are and believe they are capable of achieving greatness. A percentage of proceeds from every sale goes toward furthering the education of youth in underserved communities who want to pursue education in science, technology, engineering, entrepreneurship or math (STEEM) related fields. Equipped with industry knowledge and an innovative approach toward business, Robin's accomplishments include making Model Atelier the first official fashion boutique of the WNBA's Chicago Sky and being listed as a 2019 member of Crain's Chicago Business 40 Under 40. "I WANT TALL WOMEN TO FEEL CONFIDENT, POWERFUL AND SEXY WHEN THEY WEAR MY GARMENTS." #fashion #confidence #thedowningbrothers #modelatelier
