Ray Vincente
Apollo Male Models|Winter 2020 Dan Decker
On our search for a fashion designer to share with our readers, Ray Brown of Ray Vincente sure gets our attention. It is pure joy for Apollo Male Models Magazine to showcase the colors, the textures, and the sweetness of realizing a dream being witnessed by many more than its own dreamer.

the interview:

AMM - What inspired your creations?

Ray - The inspiration for my creations is my own personal style. I regularly could not find the type of menswear I liked and finally decided one day to make what I wanted to wear since I couldn’t find it in stores.

AMM - Tell us a bit about your personal designer’s background.

Ray - From what I’m told it started from a very young age. I was surrounded by men and women who all liked to “represent” though each of them had their own personal style. I apparently really held to this belief of personal style such that my one and only temper tantrum as a child was when my Mom would let me wear matching red socks with the shirt she picked out!

AMM - Oh, I know the feeling! How do you capture your design ideas?

Ray - I keep a drawing pad with me everywhere. There’s even one next to my bed so I can capture designs that may come to me while I sleep. I’ve awakened a number of times and started drawing.

AMM - Eat and sleep as a true designer. With so many designers in North America alone, how do you keep your designs fresh?

Ray - Wow, that’s a good question. I guess I don’t really obsess about it. My likes/dislikes in regard to my look change regularly and so, to satisfy my own style desires, change is necessary. I also get inspiration from other designers. Even when viewing something I don’t like I try to figure out what exactly I don’t like about it and how would I change it. Ideas come from this source quite a bit.
