Row A Seat 1 caught up with the self-proclaimed ‘overall artist’ for a 1:1 feature about All-Things Stylish as we get to know a little bit about the true lover of fashion. Have you reserved your seat? If not, take a seat and check out this exclusive interview with Ron Louis and some images from the PHERA look book.


Row A Seat 1: When did you fall in love with fashion?

Ron Louis: I feel in love with clothing during my sophomore year of high school. Dressing well was the popular thing like a most schools, but our school praised individual style and pushed me to pay attention to my own. I would say I fell in love with fashion in high school.

Row A Seat 1: How long have you been designing?

Ron Louis: I’ve been designing, (I’d like to say all my life subconsciously) I would always alter things I wore because of how small I was and I wanted things to fit right, but on a skilled level about 3 or 4 years independently.

Row A Seat 1: Who is Ron Louis, the designer?

Ron Louis: That’s a tough one… I’d like to brand myself as an overall artist. I care more about Art than money, fame, etc., and I want to change lives through Art by inspiring others. My designer side comes second. I’m a true fan of fashion beyond my own and a free spirit with whomever gets the chance to know me.

Row A Seat 1: What’s your definition of style?

Ron Louis: My definition of style is self expression through any form of Art. It’s everything that makes you, you and nobody on this earth can be you.

Row A Seat 1: When I design a new collection I get inspiration from…

Ron Louis: I usually get inspiration from architecture or a random detail about something; and it’s very strange when I say it out loud, it could simply be a color or texture.

Row A Seat 1: If your garments could speak what would they say about you as a designer?

Ron Louis: They would say he’s a simple guy that pays attention to detail.

Row A Seat 1: Tell us about the latest collection you’re working on.

Ron Louis: I just finished up a limited release, a suede and denim collection for a brand called Phera. Using a tan and light blue color palette and textures that were inspired by Adidas track suits. I’m currently working for an official fall release now.
