The young businesswoman said, “Typically, companies celebrate their 5th, 10th, and 15th anniversaries. However, I had not celebrated any anniversary because I was focused on working nonstop. Therefore, I decided to celebrate this anniversary as a way of saying thank you to my clients, my allies, my team, and everyone else who has supported me in this work.”
Kabande was recently recognized by the City of Chula Vista for her outstanding work as a businesswoman and designer. Mayor John McCann presented her with the award in the presence of her clients, family, and friends.
“Today marks the seventh anniversary of my dream come true. I have thought of this day since I was a child, and today we are celebrating this beautiful collection.”
Gabriela designed the line, including belts, bags, wallets, and other accessories.
“I enjoy creating exclusive designs different from what other brands offer. I enjoy experimenting with leather and exploring its various textures and colors. Our leather products are one-of-a-kind because we strive to provide something exceptional. My goal is to produce handbags that complement women’s individuality and beauty, making them stand out as unique accessories.”
In the congratulations and well wishes, Gabriela stated that “running a business requires a lot of work, dedication, and hours of planning; there are many rocks and thorns along the way; it is not easy, but personally, all of that is what gives value to the finished product; when I see my new collection, each design, and each customer satisfied with their bags, that makes me happy every time.”
The renowned designer announced that a portion of her profits would be donated to the Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) Lucha Contra la Trata de Personas en las Américas, led by Executive Director Marisa Ugarte, from her Chula Vista showroom at 881 Kuhn Dr. #205.
Ugarte stated, “Small businesses make the difference for organizations like mine; Gabriela is a woman with a great heart.” Those interested in learning more about Gabriela’s products can visit her website or call her at (619) 710-4928.
