Welcome back to our ‘Spotlight On’ series, where we give you an insight into the fabulous, fair trade brands that we’re proud to stock here at Bohocity. We’ve already talked about four of our favourite designers, and for our firth instalment we’re focusing on Gabrielle Parker. Here’s a little more about the brands history, style, and why we adore them.
The brand is from the UK, based in East Sussex. They’re pretty small, but that doesn’t mean they compromise on quality or their fair-trade processes. They work closely with a family run business from Indian, who make every piece in their collection – this ensures that every worker has safe, fair conditions in which to work.
Gabrielle, the brand’s founder, was inspired to start the business 25 years ago, after time spent backpacking around Asia. She fell in love with the culture, people, and of course the textiles. After selling at a small market in Brighton, Gabrielle Parker has grown into an online store offering women everything from lounge and nightwear to lovely summer dresses. They also supply accessories, and even clothes for your little ones!
Gabrielle Parker clothing is fun and feminine, with a strong use of florals throughout their collection. The clothes make us think of the summer, which is of course our favourite time of the year!
We love their dresses in particular, and one of our favourites is this simply gorgeous wrap dress. It’s demure and flattering, and we think this one could be worn day or night. It would look lovely dressed down with a pair of flats during the day, but it could also be dressed up for an evening date. With so much versatility, what’s not to love?
Why we love Gabrielle Parker
We’re inspired by Gabrielle’s story. To grow from an individual selling her pieces at small markets to an online business that spans continents is truly inspiring. We also love each and every design that they make, particularly the tea dresses, as they’re fun, flirty, and always feminine.
We also love the fact that they work closely with just one family in India. This ensures a good working relationship, and we know that their working conditions are fair and safe. It’s a great partnership that we hope will supply women with gorgeous dresses for years to come!You can find all of the Gabrielle Parker dresses in stock here.
