Emerging Designer Spotlight: Gabrielle Arruda


Gabrielle-Arruda Gabrielle Arruda talks about her silhouettes as being dramatic and functional. She also talks about her target customer as her boss. This way, she can focus on creating pieces that work for her woman.

The vision came from her desire to share her own point-of-view along with her experience at Peter Som, Marc Jacobs and Coach. Add in an education balanced with conception and foundation from Parsons, Gabrielle felt ready to start her New York-based label.

With an all white palette and inspiration from a wind turbine which has the power to create energy and dynamic structure, spring takes a feminine approach balanced with an architectural aesthetic.

The story is told through lightweight fabrics such as organic silks, cottons and linens on dresses with sheer treatments, geometric lines and an array of necklines that add more personality to the silhouettes. Her standouts include the Capacity blouse with a double chiffon neck piece and the Kinetic dress designed with a scalloped hem and side pockets, showing a comfortable, but sophisticated demeanor.  Pants and shorts carry the same equation and the neoprene coat is a fresh take on the season.
