Gemma Just Antela - Treasurer
I was born in Barcelona, a beautiful Mediterranean Spanish city. I studied Fine Arts and Graphic Design at the University, and I have worked as a freelance designer for over 10 years.
When my second daughter was born, I decided to be a full time mummy and stay at home, painting and sewing, my favourite hobbies. When I was a little girl, I spent hours looking at how my mother sewed dresses for my older sister and me, every single dress was special, unique and made with lots of love.
She left us a few years ago and then I became the new owner of her sewing machine and her vintage fabrics collection, so I start sewing my own handmade dresses for my 2 daughters.
With every finished dress, I think of my mother and how proud she would be. A lot of people and friends were surprised about my girl's clothes designs and encouraged me to sell them, so in 2008 I opened my first online shop on Etsy.
