This was our very first chance to attend a Chado Ralph Rucci show and we felt like we were entering a cathedral, so excited were we by the opportunity. Sure, there’s always the Fashion Week fun of spotting celebs like Martha Stewart and Whoopi Goldberg in the front row, but the real thrill was in getting to see these exquisite clothes up close. The crowd consisted mainly of socialites wearing his designs and never have we seen so many chic and sophisticated-looking people gathered in one place. You got a real sense of loyalty and devotion to the designer from these ladies. They love his work and they loved these clothes as they paraded past him. He got a standing ovation at the end. As for us, we may not have spent the show picturing ourselves in any of them, but we definitely got caught up in the pleasure of watching gorgeously rendered garments with amazing details and impeccable work sashay past our eyes. The beauty is in the details and unfortunately, nothing can match the experience of seeing these clothes in person.
