Valia Gabriel started designing sandals in 2009 and went on to create her own signature line in 2011 when she moved in the Bahamas.
Spending her summers on the Greek islands, the designer understands warm-weather footwear. Hand made in Greece, from genuine Italian leathers, her sandals are influenced by Grecian sculpture reflecting minimalist lines and earthy colors. For her the notion behind sandals is one of comfort and practicality captured in beautifully simple footwear.
Her designs cover the needs of women across a range of styles. Cameron Diaz, Charlize Theron, Alessandria Ambrosio, Nicole Trunfio, Jesse Seinfield are some of the celebrities who have selected her sandals.
