For her fall-winter 2019-2020 collection, Gabriela's inspiration was Bolshoi prima ballerina Maya Plisetskaya, who died in 2015 after having risen to international fame thanks to her incredible talent for ballet. Maya thrived as a dancer despite her father's arrest and execution during the Stalin regime, and her mother's internment in a forced labor camp until 1941.
With this inspiration viewed through her unique fashion lens, Gabriela presented a collection with the juxtaposition of opposites, the sober lines of military influence and the soft beauty of ballet.
