Robert Geller is a German-born American Fashion Designer. He graduated with a degree in fashion design at RISD in 2001 and moved to New York to join Marc Jacobs shortly after. There he met Alexandre Plokhov, a patternmaker, and partnered up with Alexandre to launch menswear brand Cloak. Cloak went on to win the Ecco Domani award in 2003 and the Vogue/CFDA Grant in 2004. Robert left Cloak after the Fall 2004 collection. Cloak finally closed down in Spring 2007. In 2006, Robert launched a women's line called Harald. Initially meant to only be knitwear, the line exploded into a full fledge collection, helping launch Robert back into the fashion spotlight. The attention allowed him to secure financial backing for a menswear label under his own name. In Fall 2007 Robert Geller menswear debuted at New York Fashion Week. Robert received the GQ/CFDA Best New Menswear Designer Award in February, 2009.
