Jean-Ralph Thurin, Chief Designer
A graduate of the prestigious Parsons School of Design, Jean-Ralph Thurin became enthralled by the fashion history of top Haute Couture Houses of Dior, Givenchy and Oscar De La Renta. Growing up, Jean-Ralph learned to sew by watching his grandmother. He was fascinated by her ability to make clothes with little more than fabric remnants and thread. In high school, although he was not yet formally trained, Jean-Ralph followed in his grandmother’s footsteps as he fulfilled the multiple requests from classmates to make their prom dresses and so began his career in fashion.

As his love for couture grew, Jean-Ralph learned to hone his skill and mastered the art of sewing. Each garment reflects the care of his craftsmanship and is intricately and beautifully finished. Paying attention to every detail. His vision is to give every bride what she seeks on her wedding day - to feel exquisitely beautiful and self-assured because her wedding dress reflects who she is in that moment! “Every bride is different, and I’ve learned to listen, really listen to each and every one of them”, says Jean-Ralph. By paying close attention, and through the process of collaboration, Jean-Ralph Thurin captures your essence and designs and creates a wedding gown that is authentically you!
