What Gives Me Optimism: Fashion Designer Gabriela Hearst

These small joy triggers inspire her to stay unapologetically optimistic.

As part of an ongoing series, Thrive is asking some of the most interesting people we know to tell us what’s been making them hopeful lately. Here’s what luxury ready-to-wear and accessories designer Gabriela Hearst, told us:

A few things that make me optimistic:

A new notebook (or sketch book) and a new season. 


Learning and understanding. Opening the shades of  knowledge so then I can process and communicate. I guess what brings me optimism is discovery and research. 

The optimism that is brought by the immaterial by the experience that stays. 

Can chocolate also bring me optimism? Because it does…

Can kisses from those I love bring me optimism? Because they do…

Can morning sunlight bring me optimism? Because the feeling of daily rebirth certainly does…

Optimism is countless for me as I am a blessed optimist.
