About the designer

The inspiration behind Gundula Couture fashion stems from the designer’s roots – born in Germany and raised in the Rocky Mountains of beautiful British Columbia, surrounded by pristine lakes and breathtaking mountain ranges led to her love of free-flowing fabrics and flattering, natural design. Each creation is unique in its own way – from breathtaking formal wear to flattering accessories, what does remain a constant is Hirn’s attention to fine detail and superb craftsmanship. Website:
