Ralph & Russo to Show Debut Ready-to-Wear Collection in London

LONDON — The London-based couture house Ralph & Russo is breaking into the ready-to-wear market, and plans to hold its first show during London Fashion Week on Sept. 15.
The house, founded and run Tamara Ralph and Michael Russo, will show at 8.30 p.m. at Old Billingsgate market, the British Fashion Council said Wednesday.
“With London being a cosmopolitan hub, we couldn’t think of a better place to launch our first ready-to-wear offering,” said Russo, whose title is chief executive officer and president. “We continue to listen to the demand of our customer and the market, which will continue to fuel the expansion of the Ralph & Russo product and universe.”
