There’s something about Gypsy Kids’ clothing that makes you feel like you’re on a holiday. Could it be their stunning range of kids’ clothing inspired by global cultures? Possibly. Quite likely, in fact.
Gypsy Kids clothing has influences from around the globe - Indian Kaftans, Chinese Cheongsams, Japanese Kimonos. You could even call it a kaleidoscope of cultural influences, all coming together to with a bit of Aussie ingenuity to create a new kind of global fashion for tiny tots.
All of the clothing is made from 100% natural cotton and each item was carefully designed for comfort, ease-of-use, ease-of-care and easy-wear. The range for boys and girls is geared towards mixing and matching, with each printed fabric design developed here in Australia, and exclusive to Gypsy Kids.
Gypsy Kids has been developed by husband and wife team, Melanie and Murray Quirk, inspired by the newest addition to the Quirk family, Zac Henry. Both Melanie and Murray have a background in textile design, manufacturing, importing, sales, wholesaling and retailing, and Melanie has also been involved in fashion and publishing for a number of years. After the birth of Zac in early 2008, Melanie discovered a collection of baby clothing ideas, print designs and fabrics that she had collected on her travels around the world during her career and her overseas holidays.
A true Gypsy at heart, Melanie has travelled extensively to romantic destinations, holiday hotspots and remote getaways, always on the look out for design inspiration. She found much of this inspiration during working trips to England, Italy, France, Denmark, Sweden, Spain and the USA, as well as during her Sub-continent and Asian adventures to India, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Japan and China.
All of these influences came together to create the Gypsy Kids range of baby clothing - mixing and matching cultural styles, ethnic colours and traditional techniques. This global vision is the essence of the Gypsy, a member of a wandering race and a person with a nomadic lifestyle - whatever their race or origin. Through clothing, Gypsy Kids wants children to understand the diversity and richness of cultures from around the world and to see that we can all enjoy each other’s unique and individual sense of style, culture, colour and tradition.
