Garbolino is an upscale women’s boutique showcasing current fashion with a European, hip, sophisticated feel. We hand-select a seasonal and revolving group of American & international designer labels from Spain, Italy, NY, LA and more. We are honored to represent the world of slow fashion and ethically produced clothing.
in 1994 when I, Monique, began designing & pattern making a line of women's contemporary clothing, “Garbolino,” in Providence, RI. With my team, we produced beautiful ready-to-wear collections and sold them to department stores & high end boutiques around the U.S.A. Ten years later, we added a retail boutique — to our storefront studio location. At that point Garbolino was known by local customers from doing the Rhode Island School of Design Alumni craft fairs. Over time we have added other designer brands which possess the same fashion integrity as Garbolino; well tailored clothing, luxurious all natural fibers; always enhancing a woman’s beauty with simplicity, elegance & style.
Today, with the inception of garbolinoboutique.com, Garbolino is passionately bringing the best quality fashion garments to our customers all over the world.
Creativity through Clothing
“Garbolino is a true gem in Providence. It’s a unique boutique featuring top notch European/American designers unlike anything else in the capital city! Monique has a talent for putting together outfits for your body type and style preferences—her devotion to her career is evident and she can help you feel and look your most beautiful. Highly recommended.”
“Garbolino is a wonderful shopping experience. There is literally something for everyone. Whether you need one quick item or you want a total shopping spree this is the place to be. This up-to-date stylish range of casual to dressy must-haves will transform the usual to an exceptional, fun time. The owner and staff are incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, experienced and willing to help you get the most of your visit. They are there if you are a one-time customer or if you become a regular. New items are constantly finding their way to the racks. We were pleasantly surprised with what we found there and have become regular customers. I hope you give Garbolino a try.”
“Discovered this wonderful boutique while exploring Federal Hill. Merchandise includes one-of-a-kind pieces that are both stylish and very comfortable for the professional workday as well as for social time in the day or evening. Monique is very helpful with selecting styles and and coordinating pieces and accessories. Can’t wait to go back!”
“I fell in love with this store and how I look in their clothes instantly. Trying on clothes was a treat. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. It was tough to narrow down my choices. The next week, I felt beautiful and empowered when I wore the clothes and jewelry I bought to work and out with friends. I ended up going back to the store to buy the clothes I put back on the rack and also found new beautiful choices! I also like that the clothes are not made in China and that there are options for sustainable fabrics.”
“I just had a chance to try on the sweater and it fits like it was made for me. This is a classic piece and will surely be part of my wardrobe for many years.”
