Annie Griffin Collection is a contemporary women’s line distinguished by effortless style, feminine silhouettes, and bold prints. The company was founded in August 2009 by Memphis, TN native Annie Griffin. A year later, Annie’s sister Robin Gerber became a business partner as the Head of Sales and Marketing. Annie knew from an early age that she wanted to work in a creative field. She studied studio art, with a concentration in painting, at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. After college, Annie began working for a well-known interior designer, where she realized her true passion for fashion design. She enrolled in Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta, and started her own company at age 25. Robin, a University of Georgia graduate, discovered her talent for sales while working at a boutique in Athens, GA. This led her to New York, where she landed an internship at KCD, a top fashion marketing firm. She worked for Annie Griffin Collection on her days off, and it didn't take long for Annie to realize the potential of a partnership. The Atlanta-based line is currently sold in more than two hundred boutiques nationwide. Annie’s designs are inspired by her artistic background, love of color, and personal desire for versatile, flattering clothing. With the choice of flirty dresses, chic blouses, and tailored jackets, the Annie Griffin girl is as comfortable at a cocktail party as she is at the office, and everywhere in between.
