Since 2007, pure luxury and elegance are redefined through beautiful gowns, designed by the British haute couture fashion house Ralph & Russo
RALPH & RUSSO
Ralph & Russo was founded by Tamara Ralph (Creative Director) and Michael Russo (CEO). Since the early years, the brand is considered as one of the world’s most important fashion houses.
Having initially entered the luxury market with couture, the duo has taken their dedication to design and innovation forward to curate a global luxury brand encompassing leather goods, shoes and Prêt-à-Porter.

TRADITION MEETS INNOVATION
As the first British brand, Ralph & Russo was elected by the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture within almost 100 years. The label showed its collection during the Paris Haute Couture Week, alongside brands such as Dior, Chanel, and Valentino.
The former president of the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, Didier Grumbach, said:
“We expect savoir faire, which is being lost, and they Ralph & Russo have it”.
RALPH & RUSSO COUTURE SS18
The Ralph & Russo Spring/Summer 2018 couture collection is a continued celebration of the many facets of all women and the collection pays homage to the Eastern exploration of Creative Director, Tamara Ralph.
Resonant of traditional Asian decoration and punctuated by imperial red silk crêpe, acid green gazar and canary yellow silk satin; the collection is a spectrum of exoticism, with transparent illusion tulle suits, crystal embroidered jacquard and draped kimono-style silhouettes edged in layers of decorative tassels.
A vivid red and an enchanting wedding dress are some of the highlights of the SS18 collection.
Moulded white crêpe jasmine petals and powder blue organza chrysan¬themums enhance delicately hand painted florals and songbirds, whilst tiers of devoré ostrich feathers and chiffon ruffles reflect the features of sacred eastern architecture.
The Ralph & Russo SS18 captivates with bold and vivid colors.
FOR MODERN WOMEN
So, for spring-summer 2018, Ralph & Russo merge traditionalism and constructive art, reinterpreting signature styles from small blacks to trench coats.
“Our concern was to reinterpret the classics – both the classics of the brand and the classics of a modern woman,” says Tamara Ralph. “It was about mixing softness with hard elements and achieving this with colors and fabrics.” For this reason, a. an almost military-looking short coat in robust denim. On the other hand, the organza and silk fabrics, which play the body in the form of dresses, play softly.
Finally, Ralph & Russo present a new iteration of luxury that has been made in London but affordable for anyone who wants to afford it.
