Few, in the world of American fashion, have created such a stir as the designer and painter Ralph Rucci. The first American designer since Main Rousseau Bocher to be invited to show in Paris by the French Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, Rucci has been pushing the bounds of fashion for the past nearly 20 years. Joined with him for this conversation at the 92nd Street Y is the visual artist and photographer Iké Udé. As listeners have come to expect from the 92nd Street Y, this another inspiring and candid conversation from two professionals at the top of their game.
With women's wear couture and ready-made lines, Ralph Rucci is known for a signature style that merges extraordinary craftsmanship with a sophisticated, restrained aesthetic, derived from his connoisseurship of history and art. A recipient of the 2008 National Design Award, Rucci has taken on the role of ambassador for American fashion, as the first American to show in Paris couture since the 1930s. Ike Ude is an artist and photographer, and the founder and editor in chief of the cutting-edge magazine, aRUDE.
