NEW YORK: Lizzie Grubman, one of the publicists profiled in the

now-infamous New York magazine article about young PR pros, has lost one

of her own young turks.



Publicist Robert Rave, 25, recently left the firm to set up his own

shop.



At Grubman’s agency, his high-profile clients included Tommy Hilfiger

and Ingrid Casares, Madonna’s club-owning friend.



Rave has already picked up clients in the music and beauty sectors,

organizing celebrity-oriented events for MAC make-up and repping the

Shag line of cosmetics. Producer and DJ Victor Calderone, who has

remixed Madonna’s material, has also placed his PR in Rave’s hands.



’The move was a tough one to make,’ Rave said. ’Even though I was hungry

to do things on my own, Lizzie was very helpful and gave me great

freedom.’ Rave, whose office officially opens in October, plans to merge

with beauty PR specialist Marni Salup.
