In their own words
Barbara later met her husband Ken Gerwit who was a clothing salesman. They both decided to invest their last five hundred dollars to become clothing manufactures in the year 1976. The gamble paid off and they went on to become one of America’s top brands in the resort industry. This truly was the beginning of the American dream for them.
Barbara has designed this resort line that is made up of hand blocked, hand beaded embroidered tunics and tops, and other related accessary items. Casual printed knit dresses and tops have now been added to this growing collection. Her clothing is worn from casual daytime shopping on into those balmy tropical nights in fine resort hotels, restaurants, and cruise ships throughout the world.
Her light and airy fabrics are made of brightly colored cotton lawn, cotton Swiss voile, and laundered linen that has been constructed for easy care and washability. She has reached her goal in presenting this new and exciting high end quality resort collection at very affordable prices.
We, at the “Barbara Gerwit” company are extremely proud and honored that her line of elegant resort wear is currently being sold in many of the finest stores in the United States and all throughout Europe such as C’Orrico in Palm Beach, Florida, and Joanne’s in Houston, Texas.
We sincerely hope that you enjoy these fashionable garments “Barbara Gerwit” has created for you.
Relax, have fun, and enjoy your life,
The “Barbara Gerwit” company
