About Ruby Ribbon

Ruby Ribbon is a fast-growing social selling fashion company that held its first sales event in 2012. The company is well funded and backed by top-tier venture capitalists Trinity Ventures and Mohr Davidow Ventures.

The unique product line includes shapewear, wardrobe staples such as t-shirts, leggings and skirts with shapewear built in, and fashion items. The Wall Street Journal dubbed the company’s products as a “combination of Spanx function with Lululemon style.”

The products are sold exclusively through a national network of independent personal stylists who conduct “pop-up” events in venues including living rooms, offices and salons and sell online through personal websites. Stylists use the latest in social media and technology to build their businesses and increase their sales footprint while drawing inspiration from Ruby Ribbon’s core beliefs: entrepreneurship, friendship and camaraderie.

Consumer response to our products and their shopping experience is strong resulting in accelerated growth. Our average trunk show sales are one of highest in the direct selling industry, providing a lucrative earning opportunity for our growing base of stylists.

Our Values:

  • Team. We value working together.
  • Confidence. We strive to enable the confidence of every team member.
  • Growth. We embrace personal development.
