We're on a mission to make these women feel beautiful, stylish & comfortable in the city, the countryside or the beach. Behind a computer screen, in a date with that hot guy or playing in the park with your bunch.
We want to become the reference of a truly European brand, with a Mediterranean soul. And we want to have an impact in these women's lives by enabling them to feel beautiful, stylish & comfortable whilst supporting a sustainable brand too.

Who is behind Gingham Palace?
That's Maria, born & raised in Madrid & now living in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, with her family, where she runs Gingham Palace.
Maria designs, manages the web, does the social media & all the other big, small, fun & boring bits, here at Gingham Palace, as this is a truly small, independent brand!
Having worked in fashion since little (helping her mum Lola in her boutique on Saturdays), Maria went to uni & studied Business Management whilst continuing helping in the boutique during her studies.
After Uni and a semester abroad in Milan (fact: it’s her 2nd favourite city!) and her 1st jobs in consulting & banking in Madrid & London (which are her 1st & 3rd favourite cities!) respectively, she went on to working back in fashion for 2 international luxury brands, where she learnt the thick of the trade & also, all the things that were not right about the fashion industry.
After moving to Frankfurt in 2019 & being inspired by a floaty gingham dress catching so much attention every time she wore it, she decided to give a go this sustainable project alive in this web!
(Mind you this dress came from a giant fast fashion brand & contained 0% natural fibers in its composition).
She was just in awe of this humble yet classic print, and made it her mission to create timeless pieces in natural fabrics in a "slow" and sustainable way.

Currently, she works from home & speaks weekly with her workshop manager & rest of her suppliers - who are in Madrid or Spain mainly - to bring you your fashion & lifestyle gingham fix!
She's also on a mission promoting conscious consumption via the brand, or with anyone that wants to listen, really, as this is a topic that she feels very passionate about. As consumers, we can always do something, big or small!
