 Journey of Discovery

We were delighted to unveil our latest creations at the convention's Sales Room. The launch of the Ruby Red Fashion Friends Cordelia doll was a special occasion, as collectors were captivated by her elegance and style. Additionally, the introduction of the Ruby Red Siblies x Ruby Red Galleria School Trip Ten Ping & Gigi dolls brought joy to  attendees who loved the Eastern culture. We were thrilled to witness the excitement and appreciation for these new additions to our doll family. The unveiling of the RRG Ten Ping series 8" doll - Paul (Ten Ping / Ruby's husband), added a touch of excitement and novelty to the experience.

Dinner Event

The dinner event was a celebration of artistry and camaraderie. We were honored to reveal the collaboration between Helen Kish from the kish and company and Ruby Ho from Ruby Red Galleria / Ruby Red Fashion Friends, showcasing the exquisite dolls that resulted from their partnership. Meeting our founder and chief designer, Ruby Ho, was a memorable experience for all, as she graciously signed autographs and shared her passion for doll making. We were also grateful for the presence of renowned doll artist Robert Tooner, whose participation added an extra touch of magic to the evening.

Our gathering was a cherished moment of connection and appreciation. We took this opportunity to reflect on the past three years, during which we faced the challenges brought by the pandemic. The unwavering support and enthusiasm of our fans through the internet have been a constant source of inspiration, and we were thrilled to share this special time with them. The fun games and prizes added an element of excitement, while the bingo games brought laughter and friendly competition, creating lasting memories.
