Project Runway Junior
Project Runway Junior designer Ruby McAloon’s first sewing machine was given to her at age 7, and 4 years later, at 11-years-old, she was hard at work designing and constructing her first pieces. A year after those garments came to fruition, she was enrolled in the Teen Fashion Design Program at the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). She’s been honing her craft ever since… most recently, in Fall 2016, as the youngest designer to (ever) show a collection: –In Denim– at Boston Fashion Week. On the strong response of –In Denim–, 2017 is proving to be another solid year for Ruby with her garments already scheduled to appear at RI Fashion Week, NY Fashion Week, and another showing in Boston. She is a multi-talented young woman with much more to bring to the table as she comes of age. Stay tuned!
