Gabrielle Viertola Chapman is the founder, designer and creative director behind the Viertola Studios collection. After spending several years in both sales and marketing, Gabrielle decided to pursue a life-long passion and family tradition, designing clothes! The Viertola name has a long history in both fashion and design, originally going back to Gabrielle’s maternal grandmother’s clothing store in Finland. Inspired by her Scandinavian heritage, Gabrielle takes clean, minimal lines and merges them with urban influences from Toronto and inspiration from recent travels. The result is modern, versatile dresses with surprising details that make all the difference.
