Therefore, a lot of knit styles were included in the fall collection, ranging from the midi dresses to the two-piece sets.
When asked about her favorite fashion piece from the fall capsule, Gabrielle said,

“The strapless maxi dress is one of my favorite pieces. I wore the printed maxi dress from our spring collection on America’s Got Talent and the dress sold out in less than a week. I got some amazing feedback from customers so we brought the dress back both in the print and in green. This dress may or may not pop up again throughout my holiday collection in different colors and prints”.
