About MeMy name is Caroline Ruivo. I am a Portuguese-Canadian, self-taught artist and sister of Dubai's respected designer, Roberto Ruivo. I adore all things related to the ethereal issues of Vogue, flashing lights, backstage passes, and the piercing enticement of the runway.
I am a recent university graduate with a successful degree in Psychology but my greatest passion in life has always been drawing. For this reason I love to incorporate the meaning of colour into every one of my illustrations. My favourite fashion illustrators include Arturo Elena, Adrian Valencia and Hayden Williams.
After graduating from the Sutherland Model training program in Toronto back in 2006, I have strutted my skinny legs for various charitable causes in the heart of Canada's favourite city, including:
York University Portuguese Association (YUPA) Charity Fashion Show: Fundraising to create breast cancer awareness amongst the student body through purchase of ticket sales and beverages (May 2009).
"Press Play" Charity Fashion Show for OSAID: Raising funds to aid the outreach and mission of Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving (May 2008).
Humber College Annual Fashion Show: Showcasing wardrobe, make-up, and hairstyle creations for the graduating class (April 2008).
Jenny Wong Beauty Institute Graduation Ceremony: Model and ballroom dancer for avant-garde make-up competition and fashion show (September 2007).
Amore Hair & Fashion Show: "The Girl Next Door": Representing the Michael Kluthe Salon; all proceeds benefited the Hospital for Sick Children Foundation (June 2007).
"Fashion Frenzy for our Furry Friends": In support of Guelph University's canine cancer research program featuring former Designer Guys: Steven and Chris (February 2007).
