Gabriel Vielma Born in Chile, Gabriel has studied and worked as a designer widely in Europe. In Madrid he studied Industrial Design at the Instituto Europeo de Design specialising in furniture. He continued to study and work in Spain and exploring other aspects of craft and design, especially glassmaking ceramics, before coming to the conclusion that creating clothes was the only way to bring to life the forms, colours, textures, and movement in his mind. He learnt the practical aspects of fashion design and construction through a combination of courses and hands-on work with established designers in Madrid and Central Saint Martins in London, as well as a period in France studying hat-making.
