Gabbi hails from a small town in East London and comes from a tight-knit family. From an early age, Gabbi dreamt of a career as an model or actress and as an outgoing girl who loves to make new friends, meet people and venture outside her comfort zone; this career has been a perfect fit.
Unbeknownst to Gabbi; her sister entered her in the Elle Fresh Face search, where Gabbi ended up a finalist and on the cover of Elle SA.
This competition was the life changer for her.
After studying drama for a year at UCT she went to Hong Kong on her first model trip and fell in love with traveling and the self-discovery the industry allows.
From there she went on to shoot all over Europe for Elle, Italian Vogue and Teen Vogue and finally, settled herself in LA where she regularly works for brands such as BCBG, Wildfox and Revolve to name a few.
Very determined, she still reaches for more and is between Miami, Paris, Hamburg and has now moved to the Big Apple.
