Gabriella Lukacs is a designer from Budapest who began creating handcrafted products in 2009 under the name of GABE, following fifteen years in the film industry and relocating to Malta 2 years ago.
On The Trail Gabriella will be demonstrating her bag-making process, showing use of her sewing machine and presenting drawings and patterns. This is a unique opportunity for visitors to see the production process of one of Gabriella’s creations, from its initial conception and design phase, through to the finished product.
Her range consists predominantly of bags, small leather goods and accessories. She is also progressively embracing different materials sand has also begun to develop new environmentally-friendly designs working with Maltese artisans so each of her products are both designed and created in Malta.
“GABE’s designs are smart and sassy”, says Esther Lafferty, art writer. “Her collections encompasses both classic tactile leather with a modern smartness to eye-catching bags in brighter colours that are undeniably fun and funky on the street.”
