City: Beverly Hills

In fall 2008, Malena Ruth launched her effortlessly sophisticated clothing lines, known as MALENA RUTH. Glamorous, chic, opulent comfort, refined and alluring are adjectives that can be used to describe both the women and her collection. Ruth creates collections that help women embrace their personal beauty and feel undeniably, and even unapologetically feminine.

Born and raised in Mozambique and economist turned fashion designer, Ruth takes luxury to its zenith, fusing a cultural myriad of fashion influences to give a distinctive and modern edge to her designs. Her vast travels and acute awareness of cultures and world beauty remained influential throughout her pursuits. She now uses this acumen for her designs, giving the line a distinctly universal elegance. “I want women to feel feminine,” states the designer with a smile. “My designs are dreamlike and alluring to the body, yet they fit perfectly into a busy lifestyle.”

Malena Ruth’s collection combined with modern silhouettes, is defined by lightness, comfort and purity. It is the philosophy that continues to redefine modern fashion and brings comfortable yet elegant sophistication to a new generation. Ruth understands that any woman can be seen as a shape shifter; mother, captain of industry, rising executive, single and fabulous. MALENA RUTH gives today’s woman designs that are as diverse as she is while remaining intricately elegant.

After all, for Malena Ruth, “Style is where elegance and intricacy meet, but the intricacy must appear to be simplicity.”
