The founder Gigi Hadid has declared that the intention behind the brand is to "honor past heirlooms and give life to new ones spanning generations.” On the about page of the brand Gigi mentions that “Reflecting on years of travel and transience, away from home regardless of the place, I was a guest in residence. Of course, those existential thoughts can creep up of feeling homesick, but I always tried to find ‘home’ within myself—my internal residence. I became comfortable with the concept of a guest in residence. And it made me think further: We’re guests on this planet and in our bodies, guests when we travel, and indeed, guests in our clothes. Clothes, when well made, can have many different lives, different owners, and different stories."
The brand was founded by Gigi Hadid. There is no information on the actual ownership of the brand as a company, but no other investors that own the company have been mentioned so far
