About Palmela G:
Palmela G has been the well-kept secret of celebrities and fashionistas, for over eight years. Born in Germany and raised in Kansas, she moved to L.A. to act. After a stint as a licensed massage therapist, Palmela G started designing swimsuits. Fashion design has been part of Palmela G's life, since she was only 10 years old. She combined her love of water with fashion, as she started designing swimwear. Palmela G's first inspiration, her mom's black velvet bikini bottom, became her first pattern, which she designed from simply seeing a picture. Named after her mom, the 'Magdalena Bottom' is still her best-selling bikini bottom.

Palmela G's swimsuits are designed from the highest-quality fabrics and have the best construction, with an order turn-around of 1-5 days. Palmela G believes in making clothes that fit the body, and in making women feel confident and sexy when wearing a swimsuit, regardless of their size. Focused on providing a service, not just a quality product, Palmela G takes the pain and fear out of swimsuit shopping. Palmela G swimsuits have been created for many celebrity clients, whose names are maintained in strict confidentiality. Palmela G swimsuits have also been featured in Mercedes commercials and many shows, including the upcoming "Nikita" show, "Young and Restless", and "Celebrity Circus".

About Marta Bialy:
Marta Bialy, born in Gdansk, Poland, during the Communist regime, moved to the U.S. when she was nine years old. She studied art, painting, and drawing, since she was a child, and about two years ago, she fell in love with metal-smithing and the different processes involved, upon starting to teach a metal-smithing class at PCC. Marta has shown her works in numerous group shows since 2007, and the exhibit at EM & Co is her first solo show. Marta has always been a non-conformist, in life, as well as in her artwork. "Soul Escape" draws upon numerous sources of inspiration, including metaphors, infatuation, desires, architecture, and military influence, as well as the personal need to escape current reality into a different form. To Marta, art is a synthesis of her personal feelings. Marta is currently finishing a BFA at CSULB, and is an art assistant and laboratory technician at PCC.
