Ralph & Russo : Runway - Paris Fashion Week - Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2016-2017

We’re all about fashion here at Tacari Weddings… one of our favorite designers is Ralph & Russo. They specialize in haute couture and ready-to-wear clothes, luxury goods and fashion accessories. We’re partial to some ruffles, a nice red lip and a little bling and this entire collection has all three and more. All of us here at Tacari are convinced we need one of everything… stat. We just can’t say enough about these designs… read on for more information on Ralph & Russo. Enjoy!

Ralph & Russo 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. 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”.

 

Ralph & Russo closed their SS16 couture show with one of the biggest wedding gowns in couture history: a dress with a train so long it required six atelier staff to turn it at the end of the runway. The gown had a total of 826 metres of tulle and 46 metres of organza, with millions of micro-beads, crystals, pearls, delicate shaped organza flowers and three-dimensional petals and leaves hand-embroidered onto the gown. The embroidery alone for the bridal gown took over 50 couturiers and 6,000 combined hours to create.
