"Inspired by the trendsetting women in my family and a grandmother who was one of the most sought-after seamstresses in town, I followed in their footsteps and started GDS in 2015. Growing up in Brazil deeply influenced my work, a place where in the 80’s, bakeries could be found every few blocks and skilled seamstresses still sewed a good portion of people’s everyday wardrobes. Community was the connection between everything, including food and fashion.
With both people and environment in mind, my dream is for GDS to become an asset to my community through products that excite consumers into learning about how their purchasing choices impact their direct neighbors and people on the other side of the globe."
