A Brooklyn native and creative. Gwen has always loved fashion and all things stylish - clothes, jewels, shiny pens, cool notebooks, you name it. At a young age her style was heavily influenced by accessorizing. Shopping for clothing wasn’t always easy. Gwen found it difficult to find stylish clothing that fit well as her weight often fluctuated. As a result she fell in love with jewelry. She used accessories to make statements with her look.
Before designing her own apparel line that would accommodate some of her concerns, Gwen relied heavily on accessories to make statements with her look. At a young age her style was influenced a great deal by accessorizing. Gwen's experience as a long-time consumer first, and trained designer second - is the foundation of the collection today.
We carry an assortment of golden jewels that can be worn stand-alone or layered and stacked. We design and source pieces and materials in line with our commitment to offer quality items equipped to accent or complete your everyday look.
Gwen's personal journey and experience with fashion is what brought her to create her own collection.
Initially self taught Gwen later pursued formal training at the Fashion Design Training Studio and the New York School of Design under the tutelage of FIT professors after completing her Master's Degree in Psychology. These outlets further developed her talent and provided her with the skills needed to create her collection.
Gwen used her personal experience as a consumer turned designer to curate her line. Her creativity and passion to create is poured into every piece.
Gwen's foundation in apparel design forged her relationship with the non-profit organization Little Dresses for Africa in 2010. After working with the organization for a few years, Gwen later formed her own initiative in support of the organization, 100 Dresses for Little Dresses for Africa. Gwen organizes a group of volunteers every year to assist with making and designing 100 dresses for little girls across the globe who need them. The project is currently funded primarily by Gwen Beloti Collection. A portion of every sale helps to fund the initiative. In theory and in practice Gwen Beloti customers are key contributors in serving the community.
In July of 2020 the brand hosted its 6th annual event in support for Little Dresses for Africa Project and has now made and donated well over 500 plus dresses.
