Gloria Brandes founded BB Dakota™ in 2005 to fill a void she perceived in the market: highly covetable, trend-driven apparel with quality construction in the contemporary market. Whether it's a flowing top, flirty dress, or fashion-forward outerwear, BB Dakota offers cutting-edge, attention-grabbing clothing for the modern girl.
Designed by Gloria and her daughter Katharine, the collection reflects the distinct viewpoint and design process of each woman. Each piece is beautiful enough to stand alone, yet versatile enough to be paired together. From a playful poncho top to the perfect pencil skirt, BB Dakota offers a wide array of designs that showcase the compelling duality created by the mother–daughter design team.
Dakota Collective, the brand’s denim line, aims to perfect the casual uniform by creating the chicest, most comfortable jeans and knit tops on the market today. Dakota Collective respects the process—using artisan sewing techniques on the finest quality denim. They also respect the experience of denim and ensure that their jeans and tops have the softest feel and the perfect amount of stretch for ultimate flexibility and comfort.
Gloria and Katharine are united in the goal of bringing good, smart design to strong women and to create clothing whose sexiness emanates from its subtlety and sense of humor.
