Gabriela Hearst in Conversation with Valerie Steele


Uruguayan-born fashion designer Gabriela Hearst launched her eponymous label, in which products are made with care and detail, in fall 2015. For Hearst, tradition is more important than trend. There is a purpose to every piece she creates; she calls her works “honest luxury.” She is the winner of the 2016/2017 International Woolmark Prize for Womenswear and the 2020 CFDA American Womenswear Designer of the Year Award. She speaks with MFIT’s Director and Chief Curator Dr. Valerie Steele about these accomplishments and her recent appointment as Creative Director for Chloé.
