Spend 5: Gabby Sabharwal

‘Create the things you wish existed’, they say – and so she did. Having been frustrated with a lack of fashion-forward prints and fresh cuts, Gabby Sabharwal embarked on creating her own swimwear line. The result, GIEJO, a line of interchangeable and flattering swimwear separates which don’t compromise on style. TWAIN couldn’t resist the retro inspired SS line and simply had to share the love with our followers. Coinciding with the first drop, we decided to SPEND 5 with the NYC based designer herself.
