A graduate of the prestigious Parsons School of Design, he became enthralled by the fashion history of top haute couture Houses of Dior, Givenchy and Chanel. Jean-Ralph’s designs have been influenced not only by his roots but through his extensive travel worldwide. He’s always loved architecture, and is often moved by the diversity of styles from the various countries he visits. This multicultural perspective creates a uniqueness and worldly sophistication to all of his designs, which in both form and color pulse with the vibration of cultures from around the globe.
His gowns have been worn by celebrities such as Kim Kardashian (The Kardashians – A Very Merry Christmas), Jenna Ushkowitz (Glee), Courtney Lopez (Extra), Brandi Glanville (Housewives of Beverly Hills), Jess Macallan (ABC’s Mistresses), Annie Wersching (24), Gina Rodriguez (Filly Brown), Pia Toscano (American Idol) and Melinda Page Hamilton (Devious Maids).

What would Ms. Galore wear on her wedding day if she were marrying James Bond? An avid fanatic of the iconic film series, designer Jean-Ralph Thurin uses the bond girls from his favorite 007 movies as inspiration for his Spring 2016 Bridal Couture Collection. This season’s luxurious collection is unequivocally served shaken not stirred.
The Fall 2015 Couture Collection is inspired by the series of lavish Easter eggs created by Fabergé for the Russian Imperial family, between 1885 and 1916. The intricate details of this collection are reflected in the structure, embellishments and finish of these gowns.
Old and Vintage Hollywood are the inspiration for the Spring 2015 Bridal Couture Collection. I went back to the time when Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Sophia Loren graced the big screen with their understated sophistication, glamour and alluring femininity.
Architecture is the inspiration at the foundation of all of Jean-Ralph’s designs. Angular lines guide dress shapes and structure , while different building surface treatments impact his selections for fabrics. Skyscrapers from around the world provided the spark for the Spring 2014 Bridal Couture Collection.
“My primary focus is to ensure that my brides get exactly what they want. There is no better feeling when a bride tells me she felt so beautiful, confident and at her best on her wedding day. 100% customer satisfaction is our mission.”
We wanted to reach out and let you know what a perfect wedding day we had from the weather to the gorgeous dress you designed for us. I can’t even count the amount of compliments I received on this dress from strangers and of course family. People are sending us pictures they took and it looks absolutely amazing. From the first time we stepped foot in your beautiful boutique I knew you would make our day absolutely perfect and you did.
I can’t begin to thank you for such a beautiful dress and an amazing experience every time I stepped foot into your boutique.
Thank you!! When I came to you one week before my wedding in need of not just a dress but hope! You and your team were there. I was dreading my own wedding because my then current dress did not fit. Well it must have been fate because the dress you ended up designing and making for me could not have been more perfect! You literally saved the day!
Thank you again and I look forward to having you design other dresses but in a less stressful timeframe.
Everyone loved my dress! I loved my dress!!!!! I loved putting it on and hated taking it off. I didn’t want to take it off at the end of the night. I had Jim promise that we could wear it again on our anniversary.
I received so many compliments on my wedding dress. The compliments ranged from the dress was exactly my style, classic and elegant, the dress is so different, the pictures didn’t do the dress justice. I love all the pictures of my dress. The way my dressed moved was absolutely amazing. It was amazing!
My experience with Jean-Ralph Thurin was INCREDIBLE! I absolutely fell in love with both Ralph and Delfrance and their hospitality. I say hospitality because they were so open and down to earth.
I specifically remember stumbling onto the salon by admiring a dress displayed in the window. My girlfriend had suggested we walk in and try on the dress, but I was convinced that it may not be a friendly environment, since it was couture after all!
Boy, was I really mistaken! It was the complete opposite…truly friendly, accommodating, creative, family-like business environment, personal attention, great customer service, which was very refreshing…I can go on forever.
I made an appointment right then and there and brought my sister and mom along for the first appointment. Ralph sat us down in his very cool office and sketched a dress so quickly and perfectly from the little ideas/thoughts that had been running in my head! I knew at the instant how talented he was, not to mention the plethora of wedding dresses that were on display. From that point on, it had been the most amazing experience to work with Jean-Ralph & Delfrance. I admired the way they were so pleasant, accommodating, and the true talent that was displayed.
When my dress came to fruition, I couldn’t believe that just months ago, it was merely a sketch and now I was wearing my dream wedding dress! Friends and family STILL talk about how beautiful and unique my wedding dress had been. A friend joked that I should freeze it and hang it in our home I’ll never forget how people were taken back at the work of art my dress had been.
If there’s one word that comes to mind when I hear Jean-Ralph Thurin, it would be EXCEPTIONAL! I truly felt like we became family and will cherish the memories forever…
THANK YOU, Jean-Ralph!!!
Thank you for the gorgeous dress you designed for me for my daughter’s wedding. Everyone raved about the dress, the color, the fabric, the design and they meant it too – not just polite, empty words. I’m so happy we were fortunate enough to visit your atelier. I have some other occasions coming up and plan to wear it again. Thanks again to you and your staff for the beautiful gown and wonderful experience working with all of you.
Thank you so much for all your help with my preparation for my son’s wedding. My dress is beautiful. I received many compliments on my dress. In fact, many friends had praise for the total look – even the shoes. Please know that whenever I have an opportunity I shall send people to your salon with an exceedingly good recommendation.
Thanks again for everything.
Come have an Unparalleled Design Experience of your own!
