Introducing Gloria D.
Gloria was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. As a teenager her grandmother sent her to learn how to make Patterns and to Sew at a French Academy in Rio and by the age of 14 Gloria made her first tube dress.
Eventually Gloria became a swimwear model and began making bikinis for her friends which were a big hit on the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. Gloria moved to Paris and attended Esmond School where she perfected her patternmaking techniques as well as learned French.
Later,Gloria moved to New York City and rounded her Fashion training at The Fashion Institute of Technology; while attending FIT she was invited to work as an Assistant For Christie Brinkley Swimwear. Afterward, Gloria created her own namesake swimwear line that was sold at prestigious stores like Barney's New York and Bergdorf Goodman. The line was also featured in top magazines like Glamour, Elle and Self. Moving to Miami Beach in the'90s prompted Gloria to create her own website and sell directly to her loyal clients. She also formed an over decade long relationship with Atomic Assistants Agency where she freelances for photoshoots, fashion shows and television shows.
