Gabriela Hearst weaves a tale where her muse strides with purpose, embodying a dance of evolution and harmony in every step for Spring 2024.
In the deft hands of NYC’s theatrical genius, Arnulfo Maldonado, the runway blossoms into a mesmerizing Druidic realm. Suspended and alive with color, it’s an electrifying vista. Maldonado’s rich tapestry of honors, from Tony nominations to the coveted Princess Grace Fabergé Theater Award, ensures every element resonates with narrative depth. The promise? Each scenic piece will be reborn in future GH settings.
Knitwear: Haitian Heartbeat, Bolivian Hands
Hearst melds culture with craft, channeling Haitian artist Levoy Exil’s vibrant spiritual patchworks into intricate macramé fabrics. This dance of color and spirit, interwoven by dedicated Bolivian artisans, results in over 5,000 hours of masterful creation, from beaded mesh marvels to recycled leather innovations.
Wovens this season whisper tales of contrasts—sharp pearlized silhouettes against organic duchess silk swirls, stream-lined forms paired with flowing sleeves. Every fabric choice, from silk organza to textured slub-linen, unveils a new chapter of Hearst’s design odyssey.
