Fashion designer, Gabriela Pires
Gabriela Pires Beachwear is a couture line that captures the spirit of miami's nightlife mixed with the sophistication of lounging at a luxury resort. Two things designer Gabriela Pires evokes through the use of beautiful fabrics and mixing her roots of Miami's culture with her training in Milan.
Gabriela has followed the fashion industry around all life’s corners. After moving to Miami from Rio de Janeiro Brazil, at an early age, Gabriela then headed to Italy to study fashion at the Istituto Marangoni of Milan. She then took her talents to the fashion capitol of the world, New York City, starring in her first New York City Fashion Week at the age of 21.
In 2009, Gabriela opened her first New York City-based swimwear showroom in the garment district; and vertical to her already astounding repertoire, Gabriela debuted her lingerie designs via her very own brand, The Panty Box, in 2012. At this same time, she opened a brick-and- mortar boutique for the line in the NoLita district of Manhattan. Following years of dedication and determination in launching her illustrious Gabriela Pires Beachwear luxury swimwear line, the brand was first featured in the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimwear Edition, the Super Bowl of all swimwear showcases. To ensure her staying power, Gabriela has followed this up with five features since, including this year's edition with models Vita Sidorkina, Kate Bock, and Anne de Paula.
Taking her God-given Brazilian roots and combining them with a generation’s worth of experience in the fashion industry, Gabriela has developed Gabriela Pires Beachwear into a force to be reckoned with.
From styles and cuts to fit all shapes and sizes, Gabriela Pires Beachwear dares you to show-off on your next beach excursion.
