Upon graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2001, Robert Geller began his career in design. Entering into a trainee ship at Marc Jacobs in New York City, Robert assisted in the creation of four collections before leaving to join designer, Alexandre Plokhov to revamp New York based brand, Cloak; a menswear line that would win Robert and Alexandre the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation award in 2003, followed by a Vogue / CFDA grant in 2004.
Following his re-crafting of Cloak, Robert launched his namesake collection, Robert Geller, during the Fall / Winter 2007 season. Four collections following, in February 2009, GQ Magazine named Robert as the winner of the “Best New Menswear Designer in America” award, an initiative established in collaboration with the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA).
At this point, having established a cult following behind the brand, Robert introduced a new line alongside his Spring / Summer 2010 collection, Robert Geller Seconds, a cut and sew collection designed to be an elegant interpretation of classic athletic wear.
In July 2010, Robert was announced as a finalist for the CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund prize, leading him to win the CFDA Swarovski Award for Menswear in June 2011, recognizing him as not only an emerging talent, but part of the spirit of American fashion.
Robert Geller launched a denim collection in Spring Summer 2015, and continues to collaborate with interesting brands each season for accessories and shoes.
