Ron has received numerous citations for his diligent and enthusiastic efforts to develop growth of the apparel design and manufacturing industries, and has traveled to numerous countries in search of partnerships in product manufacturing. Not only has Ron custom designed for a host of Hollywood celebrities, and government officials, his 37 years in the apparel industry represents a wealth of experience that would be invaluable to emerging designers.
