Tell us a bit about yourself.

My name is Liam McKessar and I was born in Sydney, Australia. I'm all about sun, sand, eating out, dancing, holidays, and designer shoes.

Explain your blog to us.

Front Row Suit started in 2011 simply because I couldn't find what I was looking for - an Australian menswear blog. I previously worked in investment banking for a major bank - and I needed a major creative outlet. I post fashion editorial, creatively directed by myself, model and designer profiles, runway reviews, street style and of course my own personal style (outfit) posts.

Tell us about your personal style. My personal style is relatively classic - I tend to invest in classic pieces - and add more seasonal fun items along the way. I try not to look too obvious! Who is your biggest style icon and why? I have many (both fictional and real) depending on how I am feeling - Eddie Redmayne is my latest addition. Gordon Gekko, Nick Wooster. Milan Vukmirovic. Dickie Greenleaf.
If you weren’t a fashion blogger, what would your dream Plan B job be? I spent 2012 working with a major fashion magazine - I think if I was not blogging I would like to expand my skills within fashion publishing. Vote for Front Row Suit now to be in for the chance of winning a £500 Reiss gift card.
