Born in 1976 in Paysandú, Uruguay, Gabriela Perezutti spent the first years of her life, in her family's ranch, where she lived with nature in its fullest. Hence, her irrevocable commitment to sustainability and responsible consumption.
From the first decade of the year 2000, when she began her first studies related to art and creativity, first in Montevideo and then in New York, she consolidated her vocation as a clothing and accessories designer, which allowed her to develop a meteoric career, obtaining wide international recognition in the world of fashion.
In 2013, after marrying Austin Hearst, she created her own GABRIELA HEARST brand, which achieved a high position in the celebrity segment, based on high-quality designs and an effective business structure that expanded in the global market.
In addition to international awards and recognitions, she shared activities with the French designer Robert Clergerie, she was the designer of the dress worn by Jill Biden, at the inauguration of Joe Biden as president of the United States, and since the end of 2020 she was appointed as artistic director of the French brand CHLOÉ.
Footwear is a sector that Gabriela has always been enthusiastic about, and as such, she dedicates a large part of her activity to the creation of new models made with sustainable materials, with a strong artisan imprint. Here are some of her proposals:
Artisanal design slides made with handmade crochet, open mesh, knotted ropes and leather bindings.
Lace-up models with a high platform, completely covered by strips in contrasting colors of raffia.
Sandal with anatomical cork sole and crossed strips in different colours.
Another lace-up model woven in raffia, with an important cork platform and colors from the same range.
Sandal with raffia braid strips and a platform with a separate heel and sole. The lining of the base is made with original two-tone raffia braids.
