Gabriele Frantzen has been a European fashion fixture for almost 20 years.
Originally based in Munich, Gabriele started her career by running the multi brand store Frantzen&Frantzen. In 2003 she founded her own distribution agency Best of 19 which she still successfully runs to date, while also working as brand ambassador for brands like Phillip Lim.
Frantzen has been captivated by the power and influence of well-chosen accessories all her life. Testing out her creations personally for months before, the ability to personalize how a woman wears Gabriele Frantzen pieces has become the cornerstone of her mission as a designer—giving the wearer a well-made, beautifully designed piece to truly make their own.
Over the past few years, her designs have been worn and personalized by some of the most unique and influential next-gen style icons around—from Leandra Medine of Man Repeller to Olivia Palermo and Giovanna Battaglia. Frantzen’s ever-evolving collection is grounded in the designer’s love of premium materials—think Swarovski Crystal, vintage pearls, and sustainably sourced fur—expert craftsmanship, and her own signature twist, cinch, or fray that has made Gabriele Frantzen pieces a modern must-have.
