We are thrilled to have our star on the rise, Robbie Briskie, as our July Model of the Month. From fitting with clients like Republic Clothing to 2(X)IST, Robbie continues to show love and devotion to the industry!
1. Where you are from?
The capital of New York- Albany, NY.
2. What you are into… studies, hobbies, special skills etc..?
Ever since I was younger, my mother who’s always ran marathons and races inspired me to turn my hobby of running into a competitive sport. This caused me to join many track & field teams and cross country, leading me to go to college for it. I also love to kayak, swim, and hike, as living right outside the Adirondack mountain park makes it easy! I also went to school for criminology and was a crime mapper for a couple years until I started modeling.
3. Favorite clients from the biz?
My favorite client are by far Spencer’s Gifts and Spirit Halloween… they’re the nicest mix of individuals who create a beautiful family dynamic and I love Halloween costumes! Also 2(X)IST was tons of fun too!
4. Dreams/goals any thing else of interest (any other dream clients?)?
My dreams are to travel around the world competing in triathlons, surrounded by friends and family, and living a comfortable life… I’m a pretty simple guy.
5. Career highlights?
I was shipped out to Zürich, Switzerland, to work for a ski brand. I ended up staying at the Matterhorn Ski and Snowboarding Resort. It was all-around such a great experience!
6. How did you get into modeling ?
It was a complete random chain of events that lead me to modeling. My friend was looking for someone to work on a Polaroid Sunglass Campaign and I was chosen to work on this project in Venice, California. From there, I was scouted and the rest is history!
