Fashion designer Ralph Rucci has a net worth of $75 million. With a net worth like that, it's easy for anyone to see that he has had a lot of success in the fashion industry. At age 21, Rucci moved from Philadelphia to the fashion capitol of the world, New York City, to study at the Fashion Institute of Technology. From there, he had his first fashion show in 1981, but it wasn't until 13 years later in 1994 when he came out with what is now a very famous clothing line Chado Ralph Rucci. In 1999, Rucci began showing fashions at New York Fashion Week, which is a big deal for any fashion designer.
In 2002 Rucci achieved the honor of being the first American fashion designer in almost 60 years to present at the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, which is also a huge honor in the world of fashion design. Rucci has earned many awards and acclamations in his years in the world of fashion design, including being named the winner of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award in 2008. Little is known about Rucci's personal life, but his impact on the world of fashion design is indisputable. He's been the subject of many magazine profiles and even a documentary on The Sundance Channel.
