Using plenty of gorgeous fabrics such as silk chiffon, soft tulle, sequins, french lace and silk flowers, the range uses Rose and Ruby’s signature colours of brown sugar, antique and classic noir with the soft new colours of tea rose, nougat, wedge wood and duck egg blue. Each gown has a name which evokes thoughts of romance and old time glamour- Shall We Dance?, Martinis At Midnight, How Sweet It Is! and I’m Smitten to name a few.

The Rose & Ruby collection is perfect for bridesmaids and even a bride may find something she loves for herself in their range. The soft, feminine looks are very wedding worthy and the hues are perfect for the warmer weather. Each garment is produced locally so you know you’re supporting Australians!

For a bride looking for something even more ‘bridal’, Rose & Ruby have a bridal range too (which you can see on their site)



Designer Rebecca (who designs Rose & Ruby with her sister-in-law Karah) says:

“The key to Rose & Ruby is using the pieces as staples in your wardrobe. Of course they are perfect for special occasions but, we urge our clients to think about how else they can wear them. Mix shorter dresses with jeans and pants or wrap a gorgeous chunky leather belt around your waist to add a bit of edge and attitude!” Rebecca said.

Rose & Ruby don’t only do frocks, there are sequined boleros, silk flowers and all kinds of accessories to complete the look.



Rose & Ruby Spring/Summer 2008 “A Fool For Love” goes on sale nationally at David Jones this month. You can also buy through their Paddington, NSW boutique (a full stockist list is available at their website) or online.
