“People kept asking us, When are you going to do men’s wear?” Says Ramsey Petersson. Taking her time, Ramsey felt now was time and started to make plans, but didn’t want to make the Men’s clothing edgy. “That’s too easy, I want to bring back the Classic Suit and tailoring” says Ramsey.
After meeting Male Model Antonio Cannon over the phone, the two instantly “clicked” and Ramsey knew Antonio would be perfect to bring RPL to the forefront. Credited with beating out over 10,000 entries in Sean John’s 2009 contest “Faces of the Future” there was no doubt. Antonio Cannon has appeared in several major magazines such as GQ, Ebony, Jet, ads for Macy’s and countless others.

Miami’s top Female Models were hand picked to pose in the evening attire. Julie, Sharelle, Laticia and Cassandra brought out the elegance of the RPL Women. “Men & Women come in all shapes and sizes and I think it shows in this line” says Petersson. The Collection will be called “Panthera” meaning a group of the four big major Cats in the wild.
Petersson recently completed work on the video shoot of “Rap Song” By Artist T-Pain of Jive records featuring Rick Ross.
