Rachael Ruddick

Having previously worked at Christian Dior in management, Rachael Ruddick recognised a gap in the market for luxury goods made from high quality farmed Australian leather - and in 2008 set up her eponymous label - featuring bags, cuffs and jewellery. 

Ruddick's collections are grounded in a clean, minimal aesthetic with geometric shapes and subtle colour and texture references to the designer's oceanside Australian heritage. Quickly garnering a fashionable following, the designer's textured clutches and careful attention to detail have made the designer a rising star in accessories design.

An established figure in the New York fashion community with studios in both Sydney and New York, the label's superior leather workmanship and the sourcing of unique materials like Stingray, Crocodile, Watersnake and calfskin, have made each bag the perfect embodiment of modern luxury.
