Since 2006, the women’s ready-to-wear collection gr.dano, designed and owned by Jill Giordano and Brian Scheyer, has grown from a locally sold independent line to a nationally sold brand. Through it’s growth, gr.dano has maintained it’s promise to be locally produced.

“With the consistent growth of gr.dano, we thought it was the perfect time for us to expand our wholesale and online presence by opening our first exclusive gr.dano Boutique and Design Studio” said Brian Scheyer. “Sausalito was an easy choice for our new location. It is not only where we live, Sausalito and Marin County is home to the type of person who has made gr.dano a success – The Creative Intellectual: A successful, creative and stylish woman who leads and doesn’t follow, both in her life and stylistically.”

Located at 42 Caledonia Street, Sausalito, CA 94965 - the gr.dano Boutique & Design Studio’s goal is not only to sell their unique brand of women’s (and now men’s) clothing, but too add more creativity, excitement and interest in the community they already love.

“We are excited to meet and dress the women of Marin and introduce our loyal San Francisco customers to Sausalito,” says Jill Giordano. “This area is special and we want to add to that. We couldn’t be more grateful for the welcoming we have gotten by the surrounding businesses and our new customers. ”
