The 44-year-old took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a graphic of a red sign that read: “Retired.” Roach, who has notably worked as Zendaya’s stylist, also expressed his gratitude for his peers and clients in the caption of his post.

Although he didn’t give a specific reason for his retirement, the former America’s Next Top Model judge did give a subtle reference to what encouraged him to leave the fashion industry.
“If this business was just about the clothes I would do it for the rest of my life but unfortunately it’s not! The politics , the lies and false narratives finally got me!” headed. “You win … I’m out.”
Though he’s crafted memorable looks for the likes of Megan Thee Stallion; Venus Williams; Kerry Washington; Tiffany Haddish; and Aldis Hodge, Roach is most well known for his work with Zendaya.
Per The Cut, they’ve been working together since 2011, when he helped the 14-year-old actress find an outfit for the premiere of Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never.
Since then, he has helped her grow into a fashion icon and someone who always makes interesting choices on the red carpet. Considering how connected their careers have been, some are wondering if his comments on “politics” and “lies” are about Zendaya.
