Gabrielle Rosas Medel

Artist Bio

My name is Gabrielle Rosas Medel. I was born and raised in Mexico City and I am currently based in Minneapolis MN, USA.
My Journey in fashion originates from the environment I grew up in. I was greatly influenced by my mother’s occupation as a fashion designer. She taught me many things about the fashion industry.
I also began developing artistic abilities including drawing and creative visualization skills. To further these skills I spent 5 years studying fashion design at various schools in Mexico City. After arriving in Minneapolis I enrolled at Minneapolis Community and Technical College with an Apparel Design major.
The Apparel program has offered me a broad vision and has encouraged me to represent myself as a designer through my first collection ‘Evocative’.

Artist Statement

My collection ‘Evocative’ is an expression of my purpose in life…a representation of realization, accomplishment and meaning in my life. Each piece has been designed to enhance a woman’s presence and journey. Clothing that enhances a bold and unique personality.
This collection speaks of a broad vision of authentic identity. My hope as a designer is to support and encourage anyone who is living in fear of standing out, of being themselves, of speaking up, of exploring their limits.
I wish to inspire women to be their authentic selves.
