About Robyn, the Founder and Curator of The Kit Vintage
I started collecting vintage Levi's when I was just 15 years old...and the obsession started from there! Anywhere I traveled, I felt compelled to search for vintage. It became my "Go To". If I had an event, a party, a place to be seen, my only choice would be to wear those special, one of kind vintage pieces that Ive been collecting. It was and still is the way for me to 'wear what I feel", to dress the way that makes me look, act, and feel like me! Not to mention, being the only one in the room in a one of kind piece feels so good! And so it goes...
My career started as a fashion editor for various magazines in New York City. I learned the business of fashion, editorial, publishing, and styling. After I packed on the experience of working in fashion for 15 years, I wanted to stay close to where my roots in fashion all began, in VINTAGE!
Now its my turn to be the one to be able to share how vintage stands the test of time with other women. To show how they are ever lasting, and be worn in a modern way.
I am so thrilled that you are here to join in the fun with me!
Our brick and mortar store shares a space with my husband, Larry Platt of Platt Boutique Jewelry.
The combination of Platt's elaborate collection of fine antique and vintage jewelry perfectly complements the Kit's assortment of luxury vintage clothing.
