Fashion Icons with Fern Mallis: Ralph Rucci at the 92Y

 
Fashion Icons with Fern Mallis- Ralph Rucci.jpg
 

Fashion Icons with Fern Mallis is one of the most interesting series in the fashion industry. Her ability to dive deep, let the icon reveal their story and engage the audience leaves you inspired and informed. In this talk, she'll be interviewing iconic designer Ralph Rucci.

André Leon Talley called him “a fashion Fabergé egg.” Oprah once called his work “a religious experience.” He’s the first American to show on the Paris couture schedule under his own name since Mainbocher in the 1930s.

This season, as he launches his new couture line, RR331, he tells Fern Mallis about the journey—and the respect, passion and discipline for detail, care, artistry and grace—that brought him to this position as America’s premier couturier.
