I have traveled widely, quietly watching the way people go about their lives and the changes in the world they’re moving in. Can you tell me what you a "designer" see that inspires you to design clothes for men, woman, and all the classy gays?
 
Loris
I am inspired by the random things; the color of the beach at sunset, the Autumn sky on a rainy day, even an old photo. I live by the saying "Life is what happens to you while you are on your way to someplace else"..... Inspiration is quite unpredictable.
 
David
Is there a particular fabric you love but just aren't able to create a silhouette out of it, because it's texture doesn't stitch with all your needle poking?
 
Loris
Not really..... If I love a fabric and its texture, I make it work.
 
David
How old were you when you realized your purpose in life is to be  a designer?
 
Loris
 It was my first love..... I began doing fashion illustrations at the age of 4. My Mom kept all the sketches. She was fascinated that I understood clothing design at that age.  To me, it just felt natural.

Loris Diran!


 
David
You design both men and woman clothes, is the creative process the same when you create your fashion magic?
 
Loris
Pretty much..... But the way men perceive value in clothing is quite different than the way women do.
 
David
Who is your favorite designer?
 
Loris
I have many...... Alaia, Montana, Gaultier, Costume National.

Loris Diran! I am getting HOT!!


 
David
What advice can you give up and coming designers or anyone that want to be apart of the fashion world?
 
Loris
Just start with something. It doesn't matter if its only 5 looks, but you have to put the creative wheels in motion...... If you start thinking about 35 outfits, who will buy it, or what magazine editor will like it, you will overwhelm yourself.  What's important is that you express your vision fully.  Everything else will come after that.
 
David
What do you fear?
 
Loris
Mediocrity... There's nothing worse than inspiring no opinion at all.
 
David
What are your last words to all the readers?
 
Loris
Fashion design is not just commerce, but an art-form.  An art gallerist once invited me to a summit of local creative professionals and referred to Fashion Design as the exception because we are sales intensive.  The reality is fashion touches every aspect of your life from the moment you get dressed for work in the morning.

Just a recap to Loris's first response " Life is what happens to you while you are on your way to someplace else" A lot of you readers know: I seek authentic encounters with people, meeting Loris I can tell you all he is easy like Sunday morning. We spoke about life, relationships with family, friends, lovers and people that come to New York to reinvent themselves, dealing with what everybody wants them to be and we agreed, we are not happy when faking. Loris I am so excited to see all your future new designs, I am forever a faithful customer, I feel comfortable in your clothes and have been told I look sexy in them. You are fashionably sensitive and you show that you care and that makes you cool. We all know that only kindness matters at the end. I wish you never have fabric shortage and you keep your fashion dream the reality that it is.
