Ruthie Allyn Davis is the designer of RUTHIE DAVIS®. As her initials indicate she is one RAD lady!
Ruthie Davis has a unique vision that is modern, sexy and functional. Her fashion muse is the sassy central female heroine from comic books or James Bond- type movies. With her background in marketing, she knows the importance of being on-trend and at the forefront of design, but she has never steered from her “girl power” glam feel.
Ruthie studied Liberal and Visual Arts and her love for architecture translates into a real eye for the art in spaces, which shows through in her offices, home and of course her HEELS! Many of the details and structures of Ruthie’s shoes are reminiscent of sky-scraper buildings or pieces of art.
Ruthie earned her Bachelors of Liberal Arts from Bowdoin College, where she studied Visual Arts (watercolor) and English Literature and then earned an MBA in Entrepreneurship from Babson Graduate School of Business. Ruthie began her career in fashion as a “Cool Hunter” at Reebok and then redesigned the Reebok Classics as fashion sneakers. As Vice President of Design/Marketing at Ugg Australia, she repositioned the iconic sheepskin boot as a fashion brand. As Vice President of Design for Tommy Hilfiger Women’s Footwear, Ruthie took the brand in a more fashion-forward direction and launched a new division, “Tommy Girl Shoes”, targeted at a younger and hipper girl. In 2006 Ruthie launched RUTHIE DAVIS®.
