Having found her unique and personal style in the midst of her struggle with her identity and sexual orientation, Gabriela sought to help others. She started by creating beautiful, eco-friendly bow ties and ties designed for any gender but intended to free women from the bounds of society defined gender roles. Unbound Estilo was born out of a need for Gabriela, a 3rd grade teacher, to create what she felt was missing in women’s attire, a company that catered to women who preferred a more masculine look. Gabriela reminds us that if we find that a service or product is missing in the world, we ought to create it.
