Ralph & Russo may not have designed the wedding dress for the Duchess of Sussex, for which they were one of the top contenders, but they still feel that Meghan Markle will always remain their muse.
Designing Meghan Markle’s engagement outfit, the designer duo presented their couture collection which was nothing less of sultry and exquisite. Having just opened their store in Dubai Mall, the couple claimed that Jacqueline de Ribes, the French fashion icon, was the inspiration for this collection.
The couture line for Fall 2018 consisted of structured silhouettes. Playing with solid colours such as yellow, pink and blue, there were also black off the shoulder sheath dresses with the corsage and garter visible to add that sensuous element. The chiffon kaftan gown with an embellished collar was definitely a showstopper. The feathered pieces were some of my favourites and can definitely see those gracing the red carpets pretty soon.
Michael Russo and Tamara Ralph are two of the most talented designers that we find today in our time. Not only do they enhance their creative process season after season, but they also keep in mind their clients requirements.
