I am enamored by art and feel that hand tailored clothing in the tradition of Haute Couture is an art form. The British fashion line of Ralph & Russo creates wearable art in the grand tradition of Haute Couture.
Ralph & Russo have ateliers in London and Paris with an in house store at Harrods in London. These are clothes created by artisans trained in the techniques of Haute Couture.
Whether gazing at a feathered and hand embroidered gown with white crystals and sequins, a chiffon gown that flutters in the air or a ball gown that is totally hand embroidered each piece is meticulously conceived and executed. The accessories in the form of bags with metal feather details or shoes that have metal branch adornment on the heels are breathtaking!
I am a huge fan of vintage and especially couture vintage because it promotes sustainability and honors traditions of fine craftsmanship. Ralph & Russo items are such pieces that will last a lifetime being passed on as true works of wearable art!
