We are thrilled to spotlight our latest Marfa Muse, entrepreneur, stylist and model, Linda Rodin.
Linda’s incredible career started as a model in the 60’s and 70’s, going on to own her own boutique in Soho, then a buyer at Henri Bendel and a stylist for the likes of Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue and Victoria Secrets. The entrepreneur later launched her own beauty company, Rodin, from her kitchen in Chelsea, New York and has now returned to modelling after a forty-year hiatus.
Linda is 5 ft 5 and wears size XS in the Shearling Combo Quilt in natural, stone, white and the Quilted Hood in burnt orange, white.

I’ve been very lucky always having interesting work that involved travel and creativity. I’ve had so many wonderful careers from styling to beauty to making a charming line of dog accessories. As long as I am being creative, I’m happy. Not sure what’s next but I’ve got a few ideas swirling in my head at the moment.
