RUBY LOVES: THE HOUSE OF CHOCOLATE

HOUSE OF CHOCOLATE

For those with a similar predilection for hand made, fine chocolate, you'll be pleased to be introduced to the House Of Chocolate, a Takapuna-based chocolatier raising the bar for fine chocolate connoisseurs.

To celebrate the recent opening of our Takapuna store, we collaborated with the talented team from House of Chocolate to create bespoke, hand made chocolates, inspired by our youthful and feminine spring 16 collection, No Drama.

We caught up with Marilyn from the House of Chocolate to find out how her background in fashion lead her to become a chocolatier...

How did you become a chocolatier?

After completing a Bachelor of Design, majoring in Fashion at AUT, I found myself wanting to further explore different areas of design. The role for Marketing Executive at House Of Chocolate came up and it was a wonderful opportunity to be part of a team where I could explore the roles of graphic design, marketing, product design and of course, learn about being a chocolatier!

What do you love about being a chocolatier?

In my opinion, there is a gap in the New Zealand market for hand-crafted and beautifully designed bonbon chocolates. This collaboration with RUBY allowed me to explore this vision. It's still early days for us and I'm learning so much, however, chocolate is always a beautiful and delicious gift so makes it really engaging!

Talk us through your design process? When it comes to designing a new chocolate we put together a mood board to decipher the direction we are heading in, taking into account colours, flavours, packaging, trends and different products we can use e.g. 24 carat gold flake. From there we sample, examine and refine!

What do you love most about collaborating ? I love the coming together of different visions and ideas to create one unique product. Working with RUBY was the perfect opportunity to create a feminine and youthful collection of colours and flavours. I love being able to explore these different moods while designing towards a specific idea! It's always a challenge but a lot of fun - I have met some amazing people along the way!
