Ralph Rucci is an American fashion icon, widely praised within the fashion world for his exquisite technique. His work attracts an exclusive high-end clientele, including the socialite Deeda Blair and interior designer Charlotte Moss. Michelle Dockery ofDownton Abbey was unforgettable at the 2013 SAG Awards in her vintage Rucci dress.
Born and reared in Philadelphia, Rucci earned a philosophy degree at Temple University, before entering the fashion business, training under Halston and a Balenciaga patternmaker. He held his first formal show in 1981, and launched his own house, Chado: Ralph Rucci, in 1996. In 2002, Rucci was invited by the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture to show in Paris - the first American-based designer to ever receive the honor. In Autumn 2012 he received his "Fashion Walk of Fame" plaque on Seventh Avenue in Manhattan. In April 2012 Rucci was the keynote speaker at the seventh annual Design Leadership Summit in Marrakech.
Photographer, Baldomero Fernandez, has been taking pictures since age 14. His work has appeared in Life, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair and W Magazine. His many honors include the Communication Arts Magazine Editorial Award of Excellence, received in 2005 for his work done in Cuba.
Ralph’s pursuit of perfection is of such a high degree that it’s as much pain as pleasure. (Harold Koda New York Times Style Magazine, May 5, 2014)

Descripción Bauer and Dean Publishers December 2011, 2011. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. This photographic autobiography includes over 250 pages of color photography, narratives behind twenty objects Rucci has collected in his lifetime, brief descriptions of Chado's couturier techniques and staff portraits. Rucci stands alone in the New York fashion scene for his attention to detail and couturier techniques. The amount of handwork involved in each finished garment is notable. As with the pattern books, the idea behind this series is to inspire the highest quality of handcraftsmanship. This sumptuous volume contains page after page of color photography revealing the man behind the objects and the inner life of Chado: Ralph Rucci, his fashion house. With the help of photographer Baldomero Fernandez, Rucci unfurls his life. Nothing has been stylized. This is an honest autoportrait of a man and a trade as revealed through the objects Rucci has collected over a lifetime and the techniques he employs when creating a garment. The photographs of Rucci's studio space do not only tell the general process of constructing garments, but also specifically reveal the techniques that make Chado: Ralph Rucci a true American original. ** SIGNED ** by Ralph Rucci.

Descripción Bauer & Dean Publishers Inc. Hardback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, Ralph Rucci: Autobiography of a Fashion Designer, Ralph Rucci, Through a wealth of stunning photo-grids, the book delves deeply into the private and public worlds of fashion designer, Ralph Rucci. His eclectic and beautiful home is revealed through a compelling series of closely-cropped photographs - everything from his boxing gloves to the contents of his refrigerator, the Elsa Peretti pieces displayed throughout the rooms and his extensive book collection on muses from Cy Twombly to Cristobal Balenciaga. The images of Rucci's design processes are equally captivating; bolts of exquisite fabrics, spools of thread, and racks of dress patterns are presented in grids, alongside notebooks rich with inspiration for past collections. No less interesting are the photographs of his file cabinets and stacks of old fashion magazines he started collecting at age 14. Behind-the-scenes pictures of model fittings, photo shoots, and runway stagings are the finale of this luxurious book. Rucci's creative genius is brilliantly displayed through a unique portfolio of his numerous award-winning designs. Nº de ref. de la librería B9780983863298
