With 17 years in the fashion industry, Ben Tobar is the style concierge at A.K. Rikk’s. With 14 years at the store, Ben has a cosmopolitan approach to fashion and delivers a white-glove level of assistance to his clientele that’s split evenly between men and women. He travels regularly with the buying teams to Florence, Milan and Paris and services an elite clientele through appointment-only personal shopping, allowing him to take his rightful place in the upper echelon of top producers in the U.S. His affinity for styling luxury has everything to do with craftsmanship and artisan influences (as his father is a painter and his college background includes art history). Outside of fashion, Ben travels to exotic locales, makes cocktails for his wife, adores his dog Osi and enjoys viewing and collecting art.
