What: Taking inspiration from a photograph by Erwin Blumenfeld of Russian-born ballerina, Alexandra Danilova, designer Deanna Didovich channels the “off-duty dancer” in RUBY’s latest collection.

“That’s Julian—” whispers a model to another model gesturing with a glance at Amy-Rose Goulding: head designer and head honcho at Julian Danger. She’s standing in the center of the space backstage, with a lint roller clutched closely to her chest, slowly circling in a 360 eyeing up the scene,…
