Gwen Hine is an American fashion designer, based in New York. She was formally trained at the Fashion Institute of Technology where she received her BFA in Fashion Design, specializing in evening wear. After graduation, Gwen gained valuable and broad experience working for both high-end luxury and fast-fashion brands. Currently, she is promoting her own collections and undertaking custom design projects for select clientele. She makes full use of 3-D design technology in designing her garments, always seeking to keep up with the latest developments in the industry.
Gwen believes that innovation and bold choices are the key to compelling, cohesive and timeless fashion design. Her mission is to draw upon varied and diverse influences to bring new and exciting statement pieces into the world. In her graduating year at FIT, Gwen was awarded the Critic’s choice award at the annual Future of Fashion show for her innovative, sporty evening gown. This was the genesis of her first collection, titled “A Change of Pace,” which will walk the runway at Vancouver Fashion Week. The collection marries two seemingly distinct fashion genres, evening wear and athleisure, offering a fresh take on luxury in the modern world. These versatile and youthful pieces can be worn day into night, starting with a casual brunch, followed by a tennis match, and then on to a chic cocktail party. Gwen’s signature use of strong colors, bold lines, and unique silhouettes are sure to catch your eye.
