About the Haute Couture Bridal Collection
“Given the uncertainty the pandemic created in our lives, I wanted the Haute Couture Bridal Collection gowns to be more provocative, pushing the boundaries of what a traditional bride wears on her wedding day. These memorable gowns reaffirm that we made it through the toughest of times, and now more than ever we will embrace the future with all that it has to offer; every challenge, and every opportunity.”
Believing in our newfound confidence to be victorious no matter what, every gown in this collection encapsulates the Jean-Ralph Thurin signature elegance, each with a unique silhouette.
This collection invokes my love for Hollywood glamour, with a step away from tradition and toward an intriguing, more modern vibe.” — Jean-Ralph Thurin reflects on his Haute Couture Bridal Collection
About the Legacy Evening Collection
“The Legacy Evening Collection was inspired by my beautiful wife, and daughters Ariane and Brielle; I am amazed every day at their individual talents and impeccable style.
My daughters are a vital part of the design process. I always seek their feedback and run the collections by them. They are my most beloved critics, and I was so happy to hear them say, “Dad this is FIRE!” in response to this collection.
My youngest, Brielle, recently graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). Her technical skills and fashion sense are nothing short of amazing! Ariane, my oldest, is also in fashion and owns her own streetwear brand called Re9al. She’s a boss and a marketing genius. #ProudDad
Our shared love for fashion continues to strengthen the unbreakable bond we have as a family. The Legacy Collection unequivocally celebrates the strength and beauty of the most important women in my life, who inspire me daily.”

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 multiple requests from classmates to make their prom dresses — and so began his career in fashion.
Jean-Ralph’s 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. Each garment is a reflection of his caring craftsmanship, an intricately beautiful creation. “Every bride is different, and I’ve learned to listen, really listen to each and every one of them,” says the designer. Through the process of collaboration, Jean-Ralph Thurin captures a woman’s unique essence, designing and creating a wedding gown that is authentically her.
