New York, Apr 23, 2012 (Global Fashion Wire) - First Steps - Gabriel Lage forges his own career influenced by his father and grandfather who were the highly known Spanish tailors of Haute Couture that introduced him in the world of fashion during his adolescence (and from whom he learned the European techniques of Haute Couture and the finest skills of handmade high quality garments).

In 1990, he chose the city of Mar del Plata to present his first Prêt-á-Porter collection. In that same city he opened his first atelier. It was when his customers asked him to design night dresses that Prêt-á-Porter paved the way to Haute Couture. Due to impact and demand he moved back to the city where he was born.

In September 13th, 1995 he presented his first collection of Haute Couture in Buenos Aires. The beginning of long term success had begun. That same year, the designer devoted himself to create his own studio, teaching and training his personnel in order to embody the spirit of his designs in the fabrics. Since then, excellent craftwomen work with him.

As of that date, he has made several presentations of his collections in Buenos Aires, in other Argentine provinces, Uruguay, Paraguay, Dubai, Chile, Dominican Republic, Paris, New York. Preserving the essence that characterizes the brand and without even aiming at it, he has acquired an international scope.
