Robbie Tomkins

Bio

Robbie began his career in the nail industry whilst working for nail art brand Rock Beauty London (sister brand of nail and makeup giant Ciaté) after he began painting nails to 'help out' at press days and fashion shows. Being spotted by Jenny Longworth on instagram led to Robbie joining her London Fashion Week team for Michael Van Der Ham and the rest as they say is history. 

 

He has gone on to establish himself as one of the leading male manicurists in the UK with an impressive portfolio of clients including Vogue (UK, Italy, Brazil and Russia), Elle, Marie Claire, Vanity Fair, DNA, Numéro, Porter Magazine, Manifesto, NOTION, Wylde Magazine, Stylist and Amica.

 

Robbie has worked at New York, London, Paris and Milan Fashion Weeks for brands including GUCCI, Moschino (LCM), Michael Van Der Ham, David Koma, Ashish, TOPSHOP, Phoebe English, Zhandra Rhodes and most recently led his first show for exciting new designer Alice Archer for her A/W 2017 collection.

 

He has collaborated with renowned photographers including Annie Leibovitz, Colin Dodgson, Cedric Buchet, Marcus Ohlsson, Josh Olins, Chris Brooks, Philip Messmann, Letty Schmiterlow and Thurstan Redding.

 

Robbie's creativity, passion and drive is unquestionable and his presence on set is cementing his reputation as not only one of the most fun people to work with but as 'one to watch'.
