WRABYN. Yes, it’s a bit of an odd name. But it’s really quite simple: Wendy + Rabin = WRABYN. Easy peasy.
WRABYN is the brainchild of Wendy Rabin, a self-proclaimed compulsive shopper with fashion creds dating back to the ’70s. Wendy’s mother understood her from the start, encouraged Wendy to play dress up, and pretended not to notice when pencil skirts were returned to her closet with crayons in the pockets.
After a career in Marketing Communications, Wendy became a founding partner in Sitting Pretty, an upscale women’s clothing boutique on Maryland Avenue. Wendy sold her interest in Sitting Pretty for an opportunity to work as the Marketing Director for a national handbag line. Years later, Wendy took a break from her career to start a family and raise her son. Unexpectedly, the fashion goddesses beckoned her, and in November 2013, Wendy opened WRABYN — the culmination of a 13-year fashion and styling career.
