Gabrielle Mandel is a highly creative individual who fosters her talent through her curiosity. After graduating at the top of her class with a degree in fashion design at Syracuse University, with a minor in creative writing and video art, she moved to New York City to continue her career.
Working with the esteemed design teams of brands like Dylan and Rose, J. Crew, Rebecca Minkoff, and Nicki Minaj for Shop Your Way, Gabrielle was inspired to create her own line of apparel. Supra Endura, Gabrielle’s first forage into fashion entrepreneurship, is a line of womenswear inspired by social art.
