casssMy name is Casandra la Cruz I am the owner and designer of the brand Gordita Gordita.

I am originally from the lovely island of Curaçao but I have been living in the Netherlands for about twenty five years now. Creativity has always been an important part of my life.

My father being a very creative person himself always inspired me to use my creativity. Growing older I lost some touch with this part of myself. None of the jobs I used to have could ever give me the fulfilment that I needed.

The turning point in my career came in 2013 when I won a designers competition at the SWAG-festival. All pieces fell into place and I knew deep inside my heart it was time to reconnect with my creative spirit and follow my heart’s desire. I love designing classy outfits with a playful twists.

I believe that every woman has the right to feel extraordinary.


Every day is a gift ! There is beauty in everything around us and there is exactly where I get my inspiration…out of everything.


It is my mission to provide women with a feeling of  being unique!
