After 14 years as a buyer and other roles with Neiman Marcus, Robyn Chauvin launched her own fashion event production company earlier this year. Robyn Chauvin Productions adds to her full plate of being a mother of two young boys, stylist, and fashion consultant.

Her passion for volunteering at the Dallas Zoo led to her and her husband chairing the 30th annual Zoo to Do in 2021, which helped raise money for zoo maintenance and new projects. This year, her company helped produce the Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary fashion show, which benefits the nonprofit and exclusively features donated items of clothing. Chauvin and her team worked for months preparing the event, which included 100 different looks.

Here, she shares how she balances work functionality with fashion and how her media consumption impacts her style.

What I Do

“As CEO of Robyn Chauvin Productions, I’m a fashion show and event producer, a stylist, and a luxury retail consultant.”

Style Icon

“Lauren Santo Domingo effortlessly mixes classic style with editorial looks.”

On the Job

“When I’m prepping for an event, I’m opting for something I can move around in while still looking polished. My go-to is a dress with a topper jacket, either a trench or a full-length denim jacket, with sandals or sneakers. Meetings require serious looks—in the summer I go with a short suit or an interesting skirt with a blazer—with a whimsical element like quirky jewelry or shoes.”

Fashion Inspiration

“I’m a voracious consumer, always reading about fashion, watching shows that inspire looks, and listening to music—all those things inspire me. Watching Riley Keogh in “Daisy Jones & the Six” sent me into a Stevie Nicks phase and inspired an entire scene in the Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary Fashion show.”

Style Defined

“Ever-changing. I have a very modernist slant at times, opting only for minimal slip dresses and 90s-inspired silhouettes. But I also love a fully tulle or beaded dress.”

Go-to Look

“Head-to-toe neutrals, or head-to-toe color.”

How I Accessorize

“I love layers of necklaces and bracelets. Each layer means something special.”

Weekend Look

“My husband, boys, and I have been playing a lot of tennis lately. I’ll wear a tennis skirt and sneakers and then throw on a boxy blazer for lunch.”

Favorite Store

“I will forever be a Neiman’s girl.”
