Robin Finnell Headshot 1


Robin Finnell has been dressing women for more than 20 years. With a degree in Fashion Merchandising, she began her career in retail management. After moving to the metro DC area 21 years ago, she became a volunteer with Suited for Change, a non-profit that provides low income women with clothing for their interviews and jobs, and realized she founds her passion. Robin became a professional wardrobe stylist and image consultant more than 12 years ago and has never looked back.

As a Doncaster Wardrobe Stylist, she helps senior female executives, professionals, socialites, and philanthropists define their style and build effective wardrobes. The Doncaster Collection is a premium designer clothing line, created and made from the top fabric mills in Europe and around the world. Robin shows this gorgeous collection at her studio near Tyson’s Corner by private appointment. Her goal is for her clients to be able to walk into their closet and walk out confident they are wearing clothing that fits properly, reflects their personal style, looks fabulous and is perfect for their day ahead!

Fashion means many things to many people. Doncaster fashion can be both classic and fashion forward. It’s all in how your style it. When you have a professional to work with, your time can be devoted to pursuing your passions.
