Forever drawn to nature, beauty, style and design… Living in Hong Kong and traveling extensively throughout southeast Asia changed my view of the world… Born and raised in the small river town of Hannibal MO, famous for Mark Twain’s boyhood stories, Branché founder Donna Hinds Gaynor childhood was every bit as colorful as these classic tales. Her vivid memories include playing Hide and Go Seek on horseback with her brothers and sister, packing saddlebags with Barbies and peanut butter ‘n jelly sandwiches, so she and her best friend Heidi could ride their horses out to the back pasture to play and admiring the smooth satiny pillow slip which had been part of her mother’s bridal trousseau.
Donna’s early love of textiles unfolded into creating Branché, her own line of women’s fashion. In 1994, Branché became one of the first environmentally friendly lines, and the name, taken from the French term for “hip” & “connected”, was perfect for the company that remains the culmination of Donna’s design degree, yoga certification, energetic healing studies, and natural, organic lifestyle.

Donna earned a BA in marketing from the University of Denver and a Certificate in Fashion Design from The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles.
