Ralph and Russo
Ralph & Russo is a British luxury goodscompany and haute couture fashion house. It became the first British brand to be elected in almost 100 years by the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture to show its collection on the official schedule at Paris Haute Couture Week, alongside brands such as Chanel, Diorand Valentino. The Chambre Syndicale’s former president, Didier Grumbach was quoted as saying “We expect savoir faire, which is being lost, and they Ralph & Russo have it”. The house was founded in 2007 by duo Tamara Ralph (Creative Director) and Michael Russo (CEO) and within a very short time established itself as one of the world’s fashion houses. Ralph & Russo opened its flagship Maison in London's Mayfair shortly followed by another in Paris on Rue Francois 1er. In 2015, the brand opened its first "retail experience" in the Harrods "superbrands" area.
