PARTY SNAPS: RUBY 'TONIGHT, TONIGHT' NZFW 2015

On Thursday 27th August we transformed an unassuming car park into the ultimate RUBY playground. This was the home of our Tonight, Tonight, NZ Fashion week show.

Six hundred of our RUBY friends poured into a pink tinted room where they sipped on Stolen Rum & East Imperial cocktails before taking to their seats to watch the runway antics unfold.

Here's a few snaps from the night to share with you…

RUBY TONIGHT, TONIGHT LOOKBOOK

The dancer doesn’t abandon her lightness and grace after hours. She carries it with her, pulling at her ballet bun and abandoning pointe shoes to greet the sidewalk.

RUBY Tonight, Tonight, our NZ Fashion Week 2015 ready-to-wear collection, welcomes the off-duty dancer, promising as much beauty and fun in her wardrobe as is found on stage. No grand plies required.

Lookbook image 2

A photograph by Erwin Blumenfeld of Russian-born ballerina, Alexandra Danilova, anchors our latest range. Our RUBY designer, Deanna was inspired by the unguarded intimacy of the portrait and was drawn to the image’s peek-backstage nature.

Silhouettes appeal to a prima’s love of ethereal attire and transitional layers, while staying true to our youthful spirit. The tutu takes gravity’s lead with the floor length, star-spangled Celesta Skirt, more suited to post-performance nights out.

Elsewhere, thick crossover straps and wrap detail hint at a life lived in leotards, and our sheer split-side pantsuit appeals to those who deem tables just as appropriate for dancing on as the stage.

Textures appeal in their sheer variety. On one hand, a delicate rose-print fabric, and elsewhere we see bohemian embroidered denim. Meanwhile, the colour palette sets light against dark. Sugarplum lilac is spotted on a pea coat, while black, camel and touches of metallic feature elsewhere.

Romantic Spark Dress

A swirling paisley print commands attention on our Romantic Spark Dress. Named after the passionate and feminine fragrance from Impulse, our NZFW 2015 sponsor. The dress hints at a sensory love story of wild violets and earthy notes.

Our full RUBY Tonight, Tonight collection will be available in all RUBY stores tomorrow, Friday 28th August and online now x
