REINTRODUCING RALPH RUCCI: Ralph Rucci is jumping back into the New York Fashion Week whirlwind with a presentation set for 7 p.m. on Feb. 16 at Times Square. Beyond that, the designer was careful to maintain some mystery: “I want it to be a surprise because of the nature of what I’m doing.”
He did let some details slip. His new effort will be called RR331 and will include apparel and shoes with prices that have a broader range than the designer has typically been given credit for in the past. “So many people think I just make clothes for women of a certain age and price bracket. I never did,” he said.
