The company is a joint venture with her famous actor husband, Robert James-Collier. The actor was born Robert Collier on September 23rd, 1976, in the city of Salford, Greater Manchester. The actor would, however, later change his name to Robert James-Collier to comply with the rules of the British Actors’ Equity Association, which does not allow two members to use the same name.

To further distinguish himself for branding purposes, Lauren’s husband would later be known as just ‘Rob’ rather than ‘Robert’.
