Robin Macy's Story: Vin-T Bikini's Creator
Robin Macy

Robin Ashford-Macy founded Vin-T Bikini in 2006 and serves as the company’s President and Chief Executive Officer through her privately held holding company Robin Ashford Inc. Ms. Ashford-Macy is an Arizona native, born in Scottsdale and reared in Southern Arizona. In 1998 she relocated to New York City. After a stint of several years with insurance giant Marsh Inc., she grew bored with the insurance industry and set about exploring potential opportunities in the area of fashion. In late 2004 she conceived the idea of custom one-of-a-kind swimwear. After refining her concept and assessing market potential, she embarked on the founding of Vin-T Bikini.  Ms. Ashford-Macy is steadily gaining recognition as one of the industry’s bold new designers with a flare for hip swimwear that conveys a contemporary, downtown look. Her inaugural line debuted Christmas 2007 throughout North America and in Europe and in South America and Australia spring 2008. Active in various community groups and events, Ms. Ashford-Macy counts among her memberships and activities the NY Museum of National History, Wildlife Conservation Society, New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY Women’s Republican Club, Aids Walk New York and many other community service and philanthropic organizations.  Read more on Thumbtack.
