A Day In The Life Of: Ruby Jacenko

Heading to meet Ruby Jacenko, its hard not to hold onto any pre-conceived notions you may have about her. With one warm smile and a Not Going Home t-shirt from her line, Ruby dispels it all.

An hour into our shoot, Ruby and I are chatting about boys, uni and life- just a genuine, hard working girl with a vision for her brand, which has quickly garnered a cult following with her “Aint Laurent Without Yves” shirts going viral in the last few months.
