About Gabriela Hearst
Gabriela Hearst grew up on her family’s ranch in Uruguay, where the notion of luxury meant things were beautifully crafted and made to last which inspired the launch of her eponymous label in Fall 2015. She wanted a brand that reflected purpose in every piece – Luxury collections with a conscience, or “honest luxury”. Gabriela’s runway shows have been an eminent example of sustainability, using deadstock fabrics, and eliminating plastic use. Her SS20 collection marked the first ever carbon neutral runway show. She was the winner of the 2016/17 International Woolmark Prize for Womenswear, the 2020 CFDA American Womenswear Designer of the Year. In December 2020, she was named Creative Director at Chloé, and most recently, she was named 1 of the 25 most Influential Women of 2021 by the Financial Times.
