Few weeks ago I attended Calgary's local fashion designer Ruby Johnson's Ruby Ellen Designs (R.E.D) Collective official boutique grand opening. Ruby Johnson is well known locally for her custom one-of-a-kind bridal dresses and evening gowns. Her label R.E.D comprise of haute couture dresses that display fairytale-like and wonderland concepts.

The boutique is located in a cute multi-storey "victorian-like ginger bread" house, perfect for the styles of R.E.D's work that many people know of. The night showcases fashion items and accessories by a collective of designers including Jolanta Fashions, Fehu Leather, and Couture by Laura in addition to R.E.D's current collection. Fehu Leather demonstrated her leather craftsmanship at the scene which was quite fascinating. 
The entire boutique reached full capacity that evening. It was one of the first nights I went out to an event since my exam hiatus, so I got to catch up with some old friends and familiar faces - It certainly gave me "a little magic" over the lesser exciting month of January.
