When I was in art school for my Fashion Design degree we studied Ralph Rucci. A Philadelphia native, he’s become one of the premier designers in the world for his simple silhouettes, rich fabrics and amazing attention to detail. In a sketch class we used him for inspiration to design our own collections. I still have the sketches mounted on a board in my portfolio. Immaculate tailoring, details like trapunto, cutouts and corded seams are his specialty.
Take a look some highlights from his Spring 2012 RTW collection.
