Born to a creative family of fourth generation couturiers, stylists and designers in Sydney, Australia, Ms. Ralph discovered her passion for creativity at a young age. She began designing and creating her own pieces from home, at just twelve years old, under the careful guidance of her mother and grandmother. She later went on to study at the Whitehouse Institute of Design in Sydney.
Beloved by women worldwide, she has given Ralph & Russo a unique and strong voice in a crowded market. Her sensibility of the female form and ability to create a modern and unified identity across all categories has propelled the Ralph & Russo brand into a global success. She oversees the overall creative direction for the brand’s couture, ready-to-wear, footwear and accessory collections, as well as its global boutiques, showrooms and offices. That’s why the integrity of each of the brand’s products is always a combination of the finest materials, unrivalled craftsmen and most importantly the creative vision of Ms.Tamara Ralph.
Ms. Ralph continues to be recognised by key players within the industry for her achievements, becoming the first female Creative Director from the UK in a century deemed eligible by The Chambre Syndicale De La Haute Couture to show during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, simultaneously making Ralph & Russo the first British brand in the same period of time to achieve this accolade and securing inclusion in the most respected lists including Fortune 40 Under 40 and the Business of Fashion Top 500. With her expert eye and considered direction, Ms. Ralph continues to be a powerhouse in the fashion and luxury world, creating modern yet timeless pieces that appeal to all generations.
