The girls behind the Spell and the Gypsy Collective line are cool, creative, and show a style that’s so fitting to their eclectic designs that you can’t help but be intrigued by the fringe, the patterns, and the layers and layers of accessories. They do that hippie-chic so well, with a modern rodeo kind of feel, and you can always expect to see feathers, turquoise, and leather peeking out from somewhere in their designs. We caught up with one half of the sister duo behind the label for this week’s style file.
I am a fashion designer for my own label Spell & the Gypsy Collective, and I’ve been working here since I started the label 8 years ago.
I went to college in Melbourne and studied fashion design.
I will always be thankful to my sister Elizabeth who moved here to Byron to join me in this wild ride!
My favorite album of all time is Tusk by Fleetwood Mac… or Dylan’s Blood on the Tracks.
My go to outfit is One Teaspoon shorts and a vintage tee, accessorized with Spell.
To get inspired I listen to music (or watch Sex in the City) while sketching/scrap-booking in my visual diary.
Trying to do too many things at the same time is my biggest weakness… Sometimes that results in chaos and sometimes in genius.
If I was a character in a movie I would be the best friend of the lead character – not too much attention on me pretty please!
In my next life I want to come back as a Stevie Nicks impersonator.
Beauty is sandy, sun kissed skin and beach hair.
Growing up I was always playing imaginary games with my sisters.
My favorite book is my Kate Moss book – So far I have 2 copies each with different covers, and plan to collect one of each cover.
The best beauty tip I’ve learned is before you head out on a Friday evening go for a swim in the ocean – instant beach hair.
I never go anywhere without a Spell bag and my sunnies.
My 2 year old son Texas always puts a smile on my face.
The very first kimono I ever designed is still my most prized possession… it’s falling apart at the seams but I still love it.
Sunday papers and a coffee and Dylan on the stereo while my husband plays in the yard with Tex is what free means to me.
