Founder

Valeria del Rey, our founder. 

 Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Valeria has always been influenced by the sea and nature.

At the age of 18, she moved to Washington D.C. to pursue a bachelor’s degree in communications and history at American University. During this time, she worked at Oscar de la Renta and Tom Ford, where she cultivated a strong interest in Fashion and Design. She then ventured off to Italy to earn her Master's in Luxury Brand Management at Polimoda. After having lived in Paris, New York, and Florence, she moved back to her hometown, Puerto Rico, to grow La Gotta by combining her culture, experiences, and style to craft distinctive, meaningful, and sustainable designs.
