New York City based designer Gabriela Moya debuts her women’s ready-to-wear collection as part of the 2011 Fall/Winter season. Having received her formal education at L’Ecole Supérieure des Arts et Techniques de la Mode in Paris and after gaining invaluable experience under the tutelage of Felipe Oliveira Baptista, Burfitt and Proenza Schouler, Gabriela Moya is ready to share her vision for the first time.
Moya’s designs combine a structural and architectural construction with an organic and poetic twist, utilizing her insight into contemporary art to evoke a fresh, elegant look. Moya’s debut collection fuses her love for art and fashion by collaborating with renowned Cuban artist Carlos Estevez, exploring the dreams, illusions and aspirations of contemporary women.
Depicting number charts and mechanical parts, the unique designs of their fabrics touches upon the idea of the functionality of beauty and the inner workings of the human psyche. Combining ease with elegance, Gabriela Moya’s inaugural line truly communicates the collective vision of designer and artist.
