Their goal is to empower women to look their Gypsy West best and inspire partnership between other women.
Nashville-based singer-songwriter, Katrina Burgoyne has teamed up with fellow Australian ex-pat Aleesha Kemp to launch a new online Western boutique called Gypsy West.
The website states that their goal is “to empower women to look their Gypsy West best and inspire partnership between other women."
The website also explains the brand idea came up during a conversation while Burgoyne was visiting Kemp’s hairdressing salon. Burgoyne handles the website, spreadsheets, photos, and content creation, while Kemp is behind the creative vision, documentation and customises every product.
The new collection Wild As Her, launched on July 15, features fringe, leather and hairon handbags and purses as well as jewellery and an array of hats including fashion and bridal.
