gls…a lifetime in the making.

We believe the art of perfection takes time and passion. This belief was handed down by our founder Gloria K., whose lifetime of experiences in the garment and fashion industry blossomed into a passion for designing premium evening and occasion wear.

As a college student in 1979, Gloria immersed herself in her family’s fabric business. It was here that she gained a deep understanding of premium fabrics, a knowledge that she has since implemented at gls. Today, our dresses are made with only the highest quality fabrics.

As a single young woman, Gloria owned and operated a women’s apparel production business, where she learned the art of making quality women’s clothing. Our dresses today are handcrafted and produced with the most care, detail, quality control and made to fit beautifully.

After getting married and giving birth to her first daughter in 1989, Gloria opened her first high-end womenswear boutique. From working intimately with designer brands, she not only honed an eye for craftsmanship but also discovered the industry-wide practice of high markups. At gls, we deliver products with the acute attention to detail and quality of luxury brands but without the high markup.

Over the next couple of decades, Gloria built and cemented strong relationships with the production factories used by the top designer brands she carried in her boutique. These are the gold standard factories producing gls dresses today.

In 2013, gls collective was born. Using her own initials as well as those of her two daughters Liz and Sarah for the name, Gloria wanted to offer to today’s customer dresses made with the same passion and care she has devoted to her own daughters. At gls, we want our customers to look and feel their absolute best without having to break the bank.

gls has been a lifetime in the making. Outfitting you for every important milestone – from quinceañeras to weddings to prom and homecoming – we are ready to be a part of your lifetime in the making.
