NEIL J. RODGERS is a British stylist and shoe designer based in Los Angeles. Neil has and continues to regularly create looks for clients to grace the red carpet of events including The Met Ball, The Oscars, Grammy’s, Golden Globes along with numerous movie premieres.
His favorite part of putting the look together for his clients has always been the selection of the ultimate shoe. During his 15 years as a stylist in London, New York and Los Angeles, Neil has collaborated with some of the world’s most beautiful and photographed women and men including Beyonce, Giselle Bundchen, Anna Kendrick, Dita Von Teese, Gugu Mbatha Raw, Gerard Butler and Joe Manganiello amongst many others.
The well respected British Saint Martins School of Art was the natural starting point for Neil to begin his study of shoe design. This was followed by a temporary relocation to Milan to attend the prestigious Ars Sutoria School, where Neil gained a deeper understanding of luxury footwear production and design.
Throughout his extensive career as a stylist, Neil’s continuing preference for a new, clean line, luxe materials and the subtle juxtaposition of tone and texture has helped create his hallmark style of understated, modern yet elegant chic, which defines the look and feel of his eponymous debut collection of Neil J. Rodgers for Fall/Winter 16/17.
The collection is hand made using the finest locally sourced materials in a family owned factory in the Riviera Del Brenta region of Venice, Italy.
