The JIPSI tale so far.....
The frustration of the search for exciting and different clothes that fit well is never ending and time consuming.
JIPSI CARTEL was established through Rachel Legan's passion for designing styles that instill a sense of confidence and freedom in women.
Rachel’s roots stem from her family heritage of ethnic dressmaking and love of culture and vintage fabrics. So a skill was born out of practicality and a need to be original, and stylish, yet keeping up with her gypsy heart.
Opening her own boutique of handmade women’s garments designed in the most amazing fabrics collected from all over the world was where the creative wonderland of her own label was birthed.
I just wanted to find clothes that made me feel confident and reflected my personality. I've always found myself dressing for my mood, so my wardrobe is vast and eclectic. I love vintage, bohemian and retro, shuffling through endless racks at op shops is definitely a favourite pastime.
Immediately recognizing a need to forge a fashion that embraces the whole woman – from sophisticated chic to bohemian beauty – Jipsi Cartel was born.
Timeless feminine pieces inspired by a creative way of living are what define Jipsi Cartel. Classic lines and vibrant fabrics are used to capture a simple elegance while expressing free-spirited fun. It’s boho beach chic meets tribal gypsy with a touch of vintage charm, expressed through flowing designs with a practical edge. Unique functional features are characteristic of this ‘no-fuss’ attitude to high-quality comfortable pieces that look and feel beautiful on the body.
