Ronald is available for work

Emerging designer, Ronald is an honors graduate of ESMOD-Beirut, and Central Saint Martins in London. He launched his first ready-to-wear collection, X-Ray, in 2007, and was quickly recognized by the international fashion press as something of a rebel, and compared to such luminaries as Jean-Paul Gaultier and Alexander McQueen.

Born in London in March 1979, his culturally diverse fashion style is a reflection of his rich international background, (having lived and studied in London, Lagos, Paris, Nice, Los Angeles, and Beirut).

Since the launch of his label, Ronald has produced sixteen women's’ ready-to-wear collections, as well as 5 couture collections, and three bridal. His signature style includes bias-cut gowns, elaborate draping, and creative embellishments and embroideries. His style is bold and architectural yet sensual and feminine. His distinctive designs represent a unique interplay of western fashion modes and craftsmanship with traditional Middle Eastern elements.
