Grad Bites: Life as a Creative

Rikesh Chauhan (RKZ – pronounced Ricks) is a musician, photographer and menswear writer.
He’s also an ambassador for the award winning men’s health charity CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably).


Having studied Commercial Music at Westminster University, the multi-talented Rikesh has since branched out into other fields within the creative industry, including filming videos, photography and most recently, men’s fashion – both as a designer and writer.
Collaborating with prominent designer Saran Kohli, they designed a collection of suits that bridge the gap between East and West (Indian fabrics meet Savile Row tailoring). Their first creation was featured in Esquire’s Best Street Style from London Fashion Week! Rikesh now writes about menswear on a freelance basis.
Rikesh is perhaps still best known through his music – as RKZ, singer-songwriter, rapper and Spoken Word artist. His musical style has been described as ‘a fusion of alternative R&B, Neo-Soul and Hip Hop’. Check out the video of one of our favourite songs ‘Notes’ here
