Ron began his career as a freelance illustrator, quickly rising in prominence by producing award winning magazine covers, as well as commissioned paintings and illustrations. In fact, one of his illustrative works is on permanent display in the library of the House of Representatives in Washington, D.C. and MOMA
Seeing the world through an artist’s eye, Ron strongly believed that art could be infused into the most ordinary of life’s functions and objects. Armed with this enlightened perspective, Ron joined forces with a number of manufacturers to apply his concept to a variety of products, including paper and home furnishings. It did not take long for retailers and consumers to take notice. As his reputation grew, he eagerly accepted an invitations to create new designs for ties. Then, of course, came the infamous “disco” shirts. Since then, he’s never looked back.
Ron dedicated himself to dressing men, drawing limitless amounts of inspiration from his desire to inject energy, style and comfort to the, then, staid, monotonous and overly constructed men’s apparel market. Nowhere did he better marry the concepts of comfort and style then in his revolutionary contain sweater. Retailers first balked at the idea of offering men’s cotton sweaters in dusty pastel tones, bu the consumers soon vindicated Ron making his sweaters nationwide best-sellers. For combining innovative applications of cotton fiber with beautiful textures, patterns and breadth of color - an approach that would become Ron’s trademark - he received both the Coty and Cutty Sark awards for understanding sportswear design.
