DESIGNERS : GWEN POTTER AND LAURA LAURENT
Brief description/inspiration/background story about the collection: Gwen Potter and Laura Laurent met a few years ago in Bushwick. With Laura’s extensive background in fashion design and Gwen’s active lifestyle as well as desire to have her own line one day, the two fused together their passions and created an activewear line. G.Wilson is multi-functional for wear both day and night.
