- Law Roach opened up about a promise he made with actress Zendaya.
- In an interview with The Cut, he said that they promised to “elevate” each other careers.
- Roach’s comments come after he announced that he’s retiring from celebrity styling.
The celebrity stylist Law Roach said he and Zendaya joined forces in a promise to help “elevate” each other at a time when they both struggled to receive recognition in their careers.
“The way that we came into the industry, nobody wanted to touch either one of us. Like nobody wanted to lend me clothes. Nobody wanted to dress her ’cause, at that time, Disney girls wasn’t considered real actresses,” Roach said during an interview with The Cut. “So we pinkie swore to each other that I would do my part. She would do her part. And we would do it together.”
Earlier this week, the image architect announced he was retiring from styling in a now-deleted Instagram post on Tuesday that shook the fashion world. This led to social media chatter about whether his decision would impact his relationship with Zendaya. Roach has helped mold Zendaya into a fashion powerhouse and a highly anticipated celeb on the red carpet at major events.
But he took to Twitter on March 15 to clear the air and clarify where he stands with the “Euphoria” star in a series of tweets.
“So y’all really think I’m breaking up with Z….. we are forever!” Roach tweeted, later adding, “She’s my little sister and it’s real love, not the fake industry love.”

In a statement to Insider, Roach emphasized that he wants to prioritize himself in the next chapter of his career.
“For me fashion has always been a love, not a job. I’ve spent so much time and energy nurturing this love and it has become my way of communicating with the world,” he said. “I don’t plan to walk away from it entirely, I am just going to take some time to step away from celebrity styling and focus on myself for the first time in nearly decade.”
