Intellectual Property Acquisition Opportunity

Dressbarn1Dressbarn is a specialty boutique destination, offering an assortment of women’s clothing options from every day fashion needs to special occasions. The Dressbarn brand’s promise is to create an authentic and inclusive shopping experience for women in sizes 2-24. Dressbarn’s offerings inspire women to look and feel beautiful with wear-now fashions that cater to her specific needs, body and lifestyle.

Brand Heritage

Dressbarn was founded by Roslyn Jaffe, a working mother who understood the need for a convenient, one-stop shop for busy women to address her fashion needs at a value. She opened the first Dressbarn store in 1962 in Stamford, CT in order to be closer to her children. The Dressbarn concept immediately connected with its customer. Eventually its store footprint grew to over 840 stores throughout the United States, and online at www.dressbarn.com. As of June 2019, Dressbarn operated stores under two brands: Dressbarn (579) and Roz & Ali (46).

Wind-Down of Retail Operations

In May 2019, Dressbarn announced plans to commence a wind-down of its operations, including the eventual closure of its retail stores. The e-commerce store remains in operation and customers may shop online at www.dressbarn.com as Hilco Streambank seeks to transition the brand to a new owner.
