 Robert Verdi Biography

Robert knew he wanted to be an artist from an early age. Born in Maplewood, N.J., to immigrant parents — who tried ... with little success ... to steer their son in the direction of a "practical" career like medicine or teaching — Robert started designing jewelry as a teen-ager. With his baubles in tow, Robert would ditch class to catch the train to Manhattan, where he'd hawk his wares to stores downtown, such as Canal Jeans. Some days he'd come home with as much as $350 in his pocket. Not bad for a kid from Jersey.A few years of hard work and a degree from New York's Fashion Institute of Technology later, Robert turned his hobby into a lucrative career, landing his jewelry in some of the most prestigious retailers in the world, including Bergdorf Goodman and Barney's New York. Robert went on to secure a spot as the style consultant for Gay Entertainment Television, interviewing such high-profile guests as designers Cynthia Rowley and Tommy Hilfger, Ivana Trump, David Bowie and Rosie O'Donnell. In fact, Robert's keen sense of style so impressed guest Cynthia Rowley that she asked him to produce her Fall '97 fashion show. Thrilled with the result, she entrusted him with planning her wedding. end content or poll

Robert's resume reads like a who's who of the corporate, celebrity and fashion communities. He was instrumental in helping Swiss watch manufacturer TAG Heuer and Brazilian based H. Stern Jewelers reposition their images by creating signature events that fascinated both the hard-to-impress fashion community and the media. He has also decorated the homes of some of Hollywood's favorite stars and personalities - including Sandra Bernhard, Richard Kind (Spin City), Marishka Hargitay (Law and Order -- Special Victims Unit) and Bobby Flay (Hot Off the Grill on The Food Network).

In addition, Robert has even turned the head of renowned author Faith Popcorn, who was so impressed with his keen awareness of trends that she now considers him to be an important 'Trendspotters' and 'Trendsetter'. Furthermore, Robert makes time to work on his favorite charities, including The Hetrick Martin Institute and Bailey House. He is also responsible for developing his inimitable events to benefit GMHC.

Robert has appeared on NBC's Live at Five, CNBC's Equal Time and Fox News debating and commenting on matters of style. He is a favorite guest of Susan Powell (host of Home Matters on Discovery) and Chris Madden (host of Interiors by Design on HGTV). In March 1998, he was the subject of a feature length story in the New York Times titled 'His Job Title is Elusive but His Taste is Impeccable' - truer words were never written. Since then, Robert has been featured in Time Out New York, Ocean Drive, New York Magazine and The New York Post.. His wit is so commanding that he has been quoted in various publications -- from Brill's Content to Traditional Home, rarely are someone's talents and areas of expertise so wide ranging.

Robert also served as the host "Full Frontal Fashion" and "Fashion Police" and "Surprise By Design".
