GENT: my style

GENT: my style

Name: Rich Stephens

Age: 40

Occupation –Entrepreneur, magician and model

About Me: We moved around a lot when I was younger due to my Dad’s job which then bought us to Wynyard. I left the North East and set up a very stylish coffee shop in Birmingham where I met a pickpocket/clown who used to be a regular. He took me under his wing to learn the magic trade which fascinated me. During this time I indulged my love of fashion by publishing a magazine ‘The Gentleman’s Wardrobe’, a quarterly listing of gentlemen’s clothing and accessories whilst freelancing for a number of glossy magazines. I moved back to the region in 2008 and developed my close up and stage magic here and in London and at one event I performed magic for Steven Spielberg which I loved. I have always been entrepreneurial so alongside this I run an IT consultancy firm. Recently I have done a lot of modelling and have even developed a small but exclusive line of vintage jewellery.

 Favourite accessories and why?

I have a tiny square tie pin that belonged to my dad, it’s been pinned inside my jacket through every gig and important event for the past 20 years and means more than anything I’ve ever bought.
