Stephanie Ruiz | Fashion Designer
Published in issue 57
World of Fashion
Born and raised in the Ecuadorian city of Cuenca, Ruiz established her creative inclinations for striking contrasts in patterns and asymmetries at an early age. It wasn’t until she participated in several beauty pageant shows for Miss Peru and Miss Ecuador, that she decided to embark on an entirely new venture: one that she could call her own. Soon after, Ruiz made the journey to China and acquired a comprehensive education in dressmaking.
Since, Ruiz has been seen on runways in Punta del Este Uruguay, Asunción Paraguay, Lima Peru, and China. Ruiz’s artistry ranges from edgy, off-beat prět-a-porter to embellished couture gowns. Throughout Ruiz’s work, the intention remains the same: to highlight the feminine silhouette for every body shape. Her motto is “ Be sophisticated, be passionate, feel attractive, be you.”
