Hey Rob, what song do you have on repeat?

Melting by Kali Uchis

Favorite scary movie?

Jennifer’s Body, it’s kind of scary but it’s hilarious and so 2000s.

I really like styling and directing shoots/editorials. Bringing a team together to work on something exciting.

If you could wear one designer forever who would it be?

Oh that’s so hard! Can’t go wrong with Calvin Klein?

Person dead or alive you’d love to have dinner with?  

I’d love to have dinner with Rihanna.


Your perfect day out?

I love spending the day with my friends at the beach or something. Road trip to a beach then a picnic on the sand.

Perfect meal?  

I think anything Italian. A creamy mushroom pasta or pesto pasta.

Favorite city?

I loved Buenos Aires. I was only there for 3 days but I’d love to go back and see more of Argentina.


Favorite worldly possession?        

All my family photos or handed down jewellery.

Favorite Instagram account?
