“Everyone just wears boardies and flip flops,” he told PAUSE magazine.

‘I’m just really starting to get into it now. And I would also like to start my own fashion label someday, I already have some ideas and things like that, and I have a booklet in which I write down all my ideas and drawings.’

Despite his young age, Ruel is making waves with some of the music industry’s biggest names, including Khalid and Zane Lowe.
