Creative Director and Designer of Plumeria Swimwear Gabrielle Cimon, grew up with a strong sense of creativity and entrepreneurship. As a child she would paint images on rocks and go door to door in her neighborhood to sell them. Her grandmother, who came from a modest French Canadian background, introduced young Gabrielle to the world of fabrics and inspired her to construct her own clothing, as she once did. Gabrielle’s grandmother subscribed her to every fashion magazine and fashion TV channel to further develop Gabrielle’s interest in fashion. The humble values and support through her childhood are what inspired Gabrielle to pursue her love for creating and designing Gabrielle always knew that she wanted to transform her passion into a career. It wasn’t until a friend saw her sketches and convinced her to actually create them, that Gabrielle finally made the decision to pursue her dreams. She began sketching her designs, finding a manufacturer and within four months, Plumeria Swimwear was born. Gabrielle wanted to create a brand that would make women feel unforgettable and sexy. She uses only the most premium quality fabrics from Turkey and Italy to ensure a flawless product. Gabrielle chose Istanbul for production because they have some of the best materials and artisans in the world. Drawing inspiration from travel destinations around the world to colors, music, events and friends resulted in a swimwear brand that is both unique and classic. Spanish music, the Mediterranean ocean and chic beach parties inspire the current collection. Each design is constructed to deliver sophisticated styles that embrace, and feel comfortable on, a woman’s body.
