Introduce yourself to our readers...
My name is Robin van der Krogt and I grew up in Leidschendam, The Netherlands.  Family, friends, music and good food are the main things I would like to be surrounded with every day. For 19 years I played soccer with a lot of fun, but I had to quit this to build up my career as an international model.

What is your educational background?
My first education I finished after high school was Sport and Movement. Hopefully I will graduate in January 2014 from Uni, Media- and Entertainment Management

How long have you been working as a model & what was your first modeling job?
Before I started full time a few months ago, I have been working part-time as a model for like 1 year and a half. My first modeling job was for EDUN, fashion brand founded by Alison Hewson and Bono.

Who are your favorite photographers, and who you would like to work with?
Photographers I would like to work with are Karl Lagerfeld and Mert and Marcus.
Where is your favorite shopping spot?  Describe your personal style..
London. I will describe my personal style as casual with a cool leather jacket, a jumper, skinny jeans and a nice pair of quirky shoes. To me it is about confidence, feeling comfortable and feeling that clothes represent you and your character.

Which fashion week is your favorite & why?
Paris, because I think there are so many different types of designers, that's what makes it very interesting.

What advice do you have for other aspiring models? 
Be yourself! Don't pretend to be someone else in front of other people, if you decide to do, sooner or later people will know you're fake.
