In a rare opportunity, we offer you the images of what goes on behind the making of the dress.  Ralph & Russo Couture

The New Romantics

The Awakening of Flora/ Le Réveil de Flore

Immortalized in Botticelli’s Primavera and Poussin’s Realm of Flora, the Goddess of Spring is celebrated by Ralph & Russo in a majestic collection that symbolizes nature’s regenerative powers.

Ralph & Russo enlist floral metamorphic myths as allegories of this collection. Acclaimed for its excellence in craftsmanship, this maison de couture inspires with bewitching embellishment.

The color palette is crisp and sophisticated, as if extracted from botanical gardens, the pomegranate color pops at you in the collection.

Sheaths of organza, a close-fitting dress caress the body tenderly and at the same time voluminous.

Fluidity was observed with the chiffons.
