The re-rise of Ruby

It’s always seemed to me that the best fashion models have two career high points: there’s the first when they appear on the scene as the next big thing. That’s followed by a lull, where their popularity wanes. Then there’s the re-rise, a time that only models with real influence (i.e. the ability to influence the fashion we purchase) enjoy. Ruby Aldridge is enjoying hers now.

He is one of’s co-founders.
