Roberto Robledo's clothing patterns with brand name

Jun '05
USA based clothing company Roberto Robledo's brand name and clothing patterns are up for license and sale. With the resurgence and interest in '80s club clothing gaining momentum, and peak interest still years away, combined with Robledo's architecturally-designed timeless fashions, this is a highly-lucrative opportunity for savvy clothing manufacturers who wish to broaden their product offering and increase sales.

Established in 1982, the San Francisco-based Roberto Robledo Company designed contemporary clothing for men and women. Roberto Robledo Company thrived with strong national distribution through leading department stores and fashion apparel boutiques until mid-2003, when the principle partner retired.

With his spirited and unexpected approach to design, Roberto Robledo, who passed away in mid-1992, brought a new excitement to contemporary American sportswear during his short, yet impactive, fashion design career. Not only did his work help to establish San Francisco as a growing West Coast design center during the '80s, but Roberto was also a leading influential participant in the development of California's Contemporary identity.

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Roberto's pioneering design concepts were based upon the use of industrial fabrics and design and modernistic dressing that translated into casual street wear fashions for men and women. Roberto was one of, if not the first, clothing designer to incorporate innovative, brightly-colored fabrics, like Tyvek, Polyurethane, ScotchLight, rubber, and Lycra-based products, featuring large industrial zippers, metal, grommets, snaps, and Velcro -- elements no other designer had prioritized as fashion elements.
