The woman behind the brand.
Born and raised in Aruba – Dutch Caribbean, Gigliola Gomez was attracted to fashion from a very early age. As a teen she discovered her passion for style and started to design her own clothes. “My designs flow from my head to a drawing pad and come to life in my home studio after having found the right combination of colors and fabrics. Fashion design has been a passion of mine ever since I can remember.”
Locally recognized for her talent, Gigliola Gomez is now taking her talent to the global fashion centers. Her designs are known for their colorful prints, flowers as well as their unique flow and feel.
In 2010 she set her sights on her own brand and started with her self-titled label. In 2012 she represented Aruba in the 2012 Aruba In-Style. In the summer of 2015, she made her debut at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Amsterdam where she turned many heads with her Caribbean Spring collection. Recently, she was in New York and contributed with her work for the benefit of the 21st annual New York Benefit of the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA).
Throughout her career she has had the privilege for dressing a number of dignitaries, celebrities and many friends from around the world.
