Our story begins…

in 1994 ­when I, Monique and my team started designing & pattern making a line of clothing, “Garbolino,” from our Providence, RI studio. We produced beautiful handmade silk clothing, 3,000 garments a year, and sold to high end boutiques around the U.S. Ten years later, we expanded into selling from our storefront studio. At that point Garbolino was known by local customers from doing RISD Alumni sample sales. Over time we started carrying other top quality contemporary designer lines. These possessed the same fashion integrity of Garbolino; great fitting clothing, comfortable all natural fibers, always enhancing a woman’s beauty with simplicity & elegance.


Today Garbolino is an upscale women’s boutique showcasing current runway fashion with a European, hip, sophisticated feel. Featuring a seasonal and revolving group of of excellent American & European designer labels from LA, NY, Spain, France, Italy and more.

Our goal is to help women of all ages look and feel more beautiful & effortlessly chic in their daily lives. We have had life changing customer experiences by updating their appearance with elegant and modern outfit ensembles. Fashion is about looking and feeling beautiful- not your age or size! Garbolino is a specialty boutique that specializes in one-on-one customer service. We strive to make your shopping experience easier by offering alterations, shipping & personal styling. Finally, one of the things our customers love — no one else has it! With our unique, hard to obtain products in limited quantities, you will not see your outfit on anyone else. I always tell customers Garbolino is a yes or no boutique . Stop by and find out why.

It will be a yes for you!
