About

GESSICA is a sustainable brand with focus on contemporary womenswear, fair-trade and ethical fabrics. We design our collections of contemporary womenswear and menswear Germany. Our fabrics are sourced from sustainable suppliers in Europe and the collections are produced in-house in Romania, by our dedicated technicians with over 20 years of industry experience

Our main purpose at GESSICA is to design styles for the modern wardrobe, that are meant to be used and loved for a long time and to work towards a better world, where transparency, equality and circularity are part of the ordinary lifestyle.

GESSICA was created in 2019 by a mother - daughter duo and is now run as a family business. 

QUALITY AND TRANSPARENCY

Our fabrics are sourced in Italy and Germany and then sewn into garments in Romania, using a transparent process that not only delivers the finest possible product, but also helps protect the environment. “The thing that touches the skin. The thing that leaves a memory. We pay particular attention to that.” Our collections are defined by Gessica’s mother who has 32 years of experience in tailoring and garment making. Elena Albu studied at Sankt Petersburg Tailoring School, worked for a German Atelier in Dresden who produced military uniforms and moved to Romania where she managed her own Atelier, which turned into a family business.

COLLECTIONS

The collections cover men’s and women’s ready-to-wear from organic and natural fabrics. And activewear made from regenerated nylon. The designs are contemporary, architectural and smart. We define ourselves through monochromatic outfits and clever finishing.
