Entrepreneurs, social media personalities behind Moda2000 brand
Hometown: Anaheim, Calif.
Gipsy and Gelssy Rodriguez are two first-generation Mexican American sisters who helped catapult Moda2000, their family’s California quinceañera dress store, into social media fame. Gipsy, 24, works as the brand’s creative director and Gelssy, 22, works as its business director. Together, the pair have helped make viral the coming-of-age experience that is a quinceañera, as well as the gorgeous gowns that are a huge part of the tradition, racking up over 3.2M+ followers on the platform and counting. The innovative, trailblazing Latina sisters are giving the quinceañera a modern twist in the age of social media and are not only helping young women find the gown of their dreams, but also keeping the beautiful tradition alive.
