Welcome and I’m so glad that you are here! I’m Suzanne Richmond, the founder of Richmond Clothier, thanks for stopping by. Life is a marathon and I’m right about at mile 13. Becoming a lawyer was one of my biggest dreams. It took persistence and hard work to accomplish it, but I got there. Having my own clothing line, is another big dream of mine. With the support of my friends and family, I have launched Richmond Clothier.
I have wanted to start my own clothing line for quite some time. Life got busy for me and threw a lot at me in a short period of time. I had three boys in five years. When I was pregnant with my third son, my mom passed away after a short battle with cancer. A year later, my marriage ended, I had to move and I became a single mom. Life got messy and hard. I kind of accepted that maybe my dream of having a clothing line just wasn’t in the cards for me. The first Christmas after my mom died, my sister gave me a new sketch book and a set of markers. I started crying because it was the whisper I needed to keep going, stay the course and keep chasing this dream.
I continued to sketch, research, and look for manufacturers. In August of 2021, I launched Richmond Clothier with the Laura Top.
I want to create ready to wear women’s clothes. I want a clothing business where all women feel welcome regardless of age or size. I want sustainable clothes that will withstand the test of time. I want to have something for everyone.
The clothes here are my own designs. I am not ordering them from a wholesaler. My pieces are high quality and reasonably priced. When I am working on a new design – I have YOU in mind, the busy American woman.
