Very Ralph – Sky Atlantic

Sky Atlantic documentary Very Ralph tells the rags to riches story of the man behind one of the most successful fashion brands in history – Ralph Lauren

Ralph Lauren is the Bronx kid who started out making ties in 1967 and within seven years was dressing Robert Redford and the cast of the film The Great Gatsby; Sky Atlantic’s Very Ralph tells his story.

Now 80, Ralph Lauren has spent 60 years in the fashion industry, as we see in Sky Atlantic documentary Very Ralph

The designer is now in his sixth decade in the business and has become an emblem of American style around the world.

Ralph turned 80 last month, which makes this film by Susan Lacy (Jane Fonda in Five Acts) a timely salute to an industry titan who, growing up, didn’t even know what a fashion designer was.
