Gabriela Garcia Olivo

Founder & Designer

Gabriela Michele is a dream I’ve had since I was five years old and living in my native country, Ecuador. After moving to the US with my parents in search of a better future, I forgot about the dream of designing and owning my brand. Focused on creating that better future, I spent the last decade earning my degrees and building a career I could be proud of. However, something was missing from my life: that childhood dream.

In the summer of 2019, I started working on the brand with a clear mission of creating high-quality clothing that is sustainable and ethically manufactured. In the summer of 2023, I officially launched Gabriela Michele luxury linen dresses that are flattering for all sizes and responsibly made in Los Angeles.

My intention with every dress is that you look and feel beautiful, confident, and comfortable in it.
