What can we expect from this year's NZFW runway show?
This year we have come up with a very exciting concept for our Fashion Week show! We have become known for having great off-site shows, and this year will be no exception. We have cast a stellar line up of local models, and can't wait to reveal the collection.
Things that inspire me are.....
Travel, Instagram & historic textile books.
Favourite New Zealand designers - apart from Ruby of course!
At the moment I am loving the knitwear label Marle, by Juliet Bates. I have my eye on a number of pieces in their new summer range.
New Zealand fashion needs more.....
I think New Zealand is doing a great job in the fashion area, but of course support from customers is always important for any business, so the more New Zealanders support our own brands the more they will flourish and continue doing a great job!
What does 2016 have in store for us fashion wise?
For RUBY, 2016 will begin with our Pre-Fall collection which I am currently working on. To give you a hint there will be lots of beautiful cotton embroideries and fresh floral prints, inspired by my recent travels.
