I never got a chance to post the pictures of the magnificent pieces from Chado Ralph Rucci’s Fall 2007, and Spring 07 Couture show this past month. Rucci’s show has always been the perfect capping to a wild and crazy fashion week in New York. The whole environment–from the music, to the models, to the actual clothes–was an other-worldly experience. It seemed as if each garment was followed by applause, and for good reason: from the detailed tailoring to the carefully-selected silks, satins, and rare feathers-each intricately-made piece was a work of art unto itself.
