      Ralph & Russo is a British luxury goods company and haute couture fashion house. It 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, alongside brands such as Chanel, Dior and Valentino. 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”.

      The house was founded in 2007 by duo Tamara Ralph (Creative Director) and Michael Russo (CEO) and within a very short time established itself as one of the world’s fashion houses.

      In 2013, Tamara Ralph and Michael Russo were jointly listed at #39 Marissa Mayer and Mark Zuckerberg on Fortune magazine's 40 under 40.

      In 2014, the privately held company controlled and run by Tamara Ralph and Michael Russo was valued at an undisclosed nine-figure sum.

      Ralph became the first female Creative Director from the UK in nearly 100 years deemed eligible to show during Paris Haute Couture week. She is also one of only three female Creative Directors worldwide who together with Donatella Versace and Maria Grazia Chiuri of Dior are eligible to present their collections during this period. She continues to be recognised by Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar for her achievements, together with her inclusion into the Fortunes 40 under 40 list and the BOF 500.

      Ralph & Russo opened its flagship Maison in London's Mayfair shortly followed by another in Paris on Rue Francois 1er. In 2015, the brand opened its first "retail experience" in the Harrods "superbrands" area.

      Sheikha Mozah of Qatar, HH Princess Ameera al-Taweel of Saudi Arabia and Beyoncé,Aishwarya Rai Bachchan & Angelina Jolie have become clients of Ralph & Russo.
