Tamara Ralph is the fourth generation in her family to work in couture and fashion design. After graduating from the Whitehouse Institute of Design in Melbourne, Australia, Ralph traveled to London in hopes of breaking into the fashion industry. After a chance meeting with Michael Russo, an Australian banker working in London, the duo launched Ralph & Russo in 2006.

The couple’s business has been profitable since its inception and filled a gap in the market in London, a highly affluent fashion hub without a local couture provider. To preserve the brand’s exclusivity, Ralph & Russo sells only one version of each garment per country.

In 2013, the couple were the only representatives from the fashion industry on Forbes’ annual list of the 40 most successful people under 40. In 2014, Ralph & Russo was the first British brand to show at Paris Couture Week, and since became the first British couture house to join the French Chambre Syndicale. Today, the company has offices in Paris and London, and a roster of more than 600 clients.
