Welcome to Gypsy Got Soul.
My name is Karen and I’m designer and head honcho.
This is my first time ever introducing and talking about myself on social media. To say it’s waaay out of my comfort zone is an understatement.
I identify as she/ her. I’m a mum to 2 brilliant kids who make me laugh daily.
I also work part time in the construction industry and love it.
I’m an introverted extrovert who wants to do everything now but doesn’t have the time or money to do it. 😂
My love of punk rock and hard rock has inspired my thoughts and creations for Gypsy Got Soul.
In the early days I designed with myself in mind as I couldn’t find fashion that I wanted to wear in retail stores- at an affordable price.
Today, I still create with myself in mind and what I want to see people in the world wearing my creations but now I am more thoughtful about where my product is being manufactured.
Is it sustainable? Can I recycle rather than make from new.
Through out the last few years I’ve made tonnes of mistakes and learnt and grown from them.
I recently felt reborn when I rediscovered my love of upcycling clothing and painting.
I’m investing my time and passion into RENEWING denim and leather (including man made) and SLOWING my fashion brand down.
Fans will still see some of their favourite staple items- like my quality Tshirts.
They will also see new ONE OF A KIND pieces. Pieces they won’t find in a High Street shop or on a fast fashion web platform.
These pieces will be reworked to create something new, one of a kind and sustainable.
I’m super grateful to my customers and friends who have supported Gypsy Got Soul and I’m super excited to pursue a more sustainable and punk as f$&k brand.
