Gabriela Hearst is the founder and creative director of Gabriela Hearst and the creative director of Chloé. Ms. Hearst grew up on her family’s ranch in Uruguay, where the notion of luxury meant things were beautifully crafted and made to last which inspired the launch of her eponymous label in Fall 2015. She wanted a brand that reflected purpose in every piece - luxury collections with a conscience or “honest luxury”. Ms. Hearst’s collections have been an eminent example of sustainability, using deadstock fabrics and eliminating plastic use. Her SS20 collection marked the first ever carbon neutral runway show. In December 2020 she was named Creative Director at Chloé and named #1 of the 25 most Influential Women of 2021 by the Financial Times.
