Ralph Rucci & the Schmooze Factor
In case you missed his show we have highlights - click here for 10 photos from the collection.
We thought Ralph Rucci's show was one of the very best of the season. But we noticed, if you did not, that Style.com neglected(?) to include Ralph's show in their photo gallery of the New York Fall 2003 collections. We can think of a number of reason's why Ralph was not included, but what one fashion insider told us may be closest to the truth.
Ralph does not schmooze the editors at all. He is very much like Geoffrey Beene in many ways. He like Beene keeps his distance from the fashion media. And they in turn, just don't know how to deal with him. So they choose either not to acknowledge him or, at the most, give him little play in their columns.
