Stanhope, AIMCo and Mitsui Fudosan have announced that White City Place is set to welcome British haute-couture fashion house Ralph and Russo to the MediaWorks building in May 2019. Renowned for housing one of the largest couture ateliers in Europe, Ralph and Russo will occupy a 30,000 sq ft space within the MediaWorks building in White City Place, almost twice the size of their current atelier. Ralph and Russo have established themselves as one of the most sought-after designers in the world and have been instrumental in the growth of London as a centre for haute-couture fashion.
They have been favoured by the royal family in recent years, with Meghan Markle wearing a Ralph and Russo dress for her official engagement photos and Princess Beatrice wearing a Ralph and Russo suit to Princess Eugenie’s wedding. The arrival of Ralph and Russo is the latest in a stream of high-profile companies to take up residence at White City Place, which is cementing itself as the hub for creative and tech industries in west London. They will be joining other industry-leading organisations such as the BBC, ITV, Yoox-Net-A-Porter (YNAP), and Huckletree West.
