Ruby and Rain was born after Hayley launched her label White Chalk. I loved the clothes so much but couldn’t quite squeeze myself into their biggest size. I asked Hayley to increase the sizing but it wasn’t quite that easy!
After loads of phone calls and doing a lot of research we realised there was a huge gap in the market for this type of plus size clothing. We got together, played with fabrics and drew up some designs which then turned into samples.... we then put them to the public and got such a good response we thought we’d give it a try!
We then needed a name, we wanted something that made us both happy - Ruby & Rain. Ruby Bay is a special place in my life and Hayley is farming in Marlborough so whenever it rains she has a very happy husband.
Hayley and I have been best friends since we were 2 years old, so working together on a daily basis is something I could have only ever dreamed of. With me based in the North and her in the South we like to call ourselves the ‘dream team’!
We are so excited about where this journey has taken us so far...Join us and come along for the ride.
