Young entrepreneur Anthony Rosa is building a fashion empire on the tip of a Peruvian janitor. Rosa, the president and CEO of Global Sourcing & Enterprise Apparel (GSEA) Fashion Group, LLC, had spent six years in China learning the apparel manufacturing industry inside and out, and by 2007 he was ready to start his own factory. A chance conversation with an office custodian from Peru led Rosa to that country, where he proceeded to build his factory brick by brick.
Today, GSEA Fashion Group is producing branded apparel for fashion labels around the globe. In Lima, Rosa found the ideal combination of affordable land, proximity to the U.S., low manufacturing costs, and a perennial supply of premium pima cotton. On-trend T-shirts, novelty tops, hoodies, tank tops and dresses are just a few of the fashion bestsellers rolling out of Peru to meet global demand. The GSEA Peru factory handles orders that come in through the GSEA Fashion Group office in New York's fashion district, which also houses GSEA's five house brands: got G.A.M.E.?, Glossy Chick, Project Threads, Hi & Lo and D'Anabel.
Rosa may have taken the long way to success in the fiercely competitive fashion industry, but in never giving up on his aspirations, the University of Miami graduate has managed to carve out a niche for GSEA Fashion Group: producing high-quality knit garments at competitive prices for up-and-coming designers and established labels alike. Rosa credits his company's success to GSEA Fashion Group's close-knit and talented team, which embodies one of the company's core values, "Build a Positive Team and Family Spirit," and includes experts in global branding, logistics, fashion merchandising, retailing and graphic design.
As GSEA Fashion Group navigates the first phase of its development in Peru, the entire GSEA enterprise continues to define itself. "Our ultimate goal at GSEA Fashion Group is to be a one-stop shop for emerging artists and designers who are looking for a team that goes the extra mile to manufacture their works of art and assist them with building their brands," Rosa explained. "Among our core values are 'Encourage Risk Taking' and 'Do More With Less.' This is where we give our customers a competitive edge and 'Deliver The Customer Experience,' another of GSEA Fashion Group's core values."
