GSEA Fashion Group Now Operating Its Own Apparel Manufacturing Plant in Lima, Peru

October 15, 2012

NEW YORK, Oct. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — 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, a native of Perth Amboy, NJ and of Puerto Rican descent, to that country, where he proceeded to build his factory brick by brick.

This video chronicles the journey of GSEA Fashion Group and the road traveled to formally start a company 3000 miles away in Lima, Peru. Acquiring credentials, purchasing property, building an apparel manufacturing plant and developing a team of employees to share in the core values of the company through faith, hard work and commitment to the vision.

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 three of GSEA’s proprietary brands: got G.A.M.E.?, Project Threads and the most recently launched Glossy Chick (www.glossychick.com).

As GSEA Fashion Group navigates through the next phase of its development in Peru, the entire GSEA enterprise continues to define itself. 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.

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 factory-direct, high-quality knit garments with Peru’s finest Pima Cotton. “We are committed to the growth of our factory in Peru and expanding our operation here in NY. Our attention now turns to seeking the right partner to help infuse the growth capital required to allow for that type of expansion and increase our production capacity,” Rosa explained.
