“After fourteen successful seasons of couture shows in Paris, it is with both great honour as well as joy that I am returning to the beautiful world of couture with my inaugural collection under my eponymous brand. I have worked tirelessly and passionately on this collection, and I am forever grateful that I am able to do what I love most, and with my incredible artisans and team that I have worked with for so many years.” – Tamara Ralph
A poetic interpretation of fearless creativity that pushes the boundaries of couture, defining art in its truest form. The essence of the Tamara Ralph collection harnesses the power of craftsmanship and savoir-faire discovered through generations of couture, brought to life through designs that lay a foundation built to stand the test of time.
An expression of strength in femininity is discovered through different facets and features with an armour-like detailing. In its imagination and in its creation, the collection empowers the muse to confront any obstacle with confidence, grace and strength. Shaped by the petite mains with jewel-like detailing and a rich array of embellishments - roses encrusted with crystals, ornate cages draped in pearls and crystals and chainmail detailing - the amorous structure that results represents a bold and strong interpretation of the future of Tamara Ralph. The collection is abundant with soft hues of pale pastels - mint, blush pink and lavender - juxtaposed with rich tones of velvet black and raspberry pink. Sumptuous materials - silk crepe, chiffon, silk satin organza, silk taffeta and velvet - contrast with structural accessories. With pleated elegance weaved throughout, strengthened with metallic emblematic features, the collection embodies an emboldened sense of femininity and symbolic hidden strength.
An exploration of limitless distinction, the sheer force of the collection was designed to evoke a compelling mix of escapism and valiant reality.
