Ryan Lochte: Swimmer turned designer?

Dressed in head-to-toe Ralph, Ryan Lochte sat front row, next to Olivia Wilde and Jessica Alba, at the designer's Spring 2013 show this morning.

FashionEtc took a moment during the post-show chaos to talk to the Olympic swimmer about his Fashion Week and aspirations for a Lochte clothing line.

We've seen you making the rounds at all the shows, from Milly to Rebecca Minkoff, and now Ralph Lauren, how has your first fashion week been?

I enjoyed all the shows but you gotta save the best for last. Being here, in all Ralph Lauren, I just love his clothes, and it looks good on everyone.

What has been the highlight of the week?

I want to start my own clothing line, so fashion week has been great, going to the shows and talking to the designers.

What can we expect from a Lochte clothing line?

Anything I do, is going to have an edge to it. I want that athletic edge, but also I want that high end look, clean cut formal wear with a little Lochte style.

What is Lochte style?

All edge.

Watch out, Lochte leisure and luxury wear, coming soon!
