Gallop Lifestyle is a new online store founded by NSW-based sisters-in-law Annie Bowen and Janet Addess,  who share a passion for textiles, fashion and homewares.   Janet has a background in fashion design and pattern making (‘she’s the creative!’ says Annie!).  Janet looks after product selection, suppliers and inventory, while juggling family life with two little girls in the Blue Mountains of NSW.  She’s worked for the likes of von Troska, Mr Rose and Fleur Wood, and currently runs a freelance pattern making business.

Annie is based in Sydney, with one daughter and baby number two on the way (due in just a few weeks!). With a background in sales & marketing, but a keen interest in design and homewares, Annie has now turned her knowledge of online marketing to focus on a little business she is truly passionate about!  Annie looks after marketing, the Gallop Lifestyle website stuff and distribution.

Together these two busy Mums have devised a simple strategy for their brand new business –  ‘to work with amazingly creative people who produce beautiful products in an ethical way’.  Gallop Lifestyle stocks only from suppliers with a commitment to fair trade practices.

Gallop Lifestyle doesn’t have an enormous collection of stock just yet, but there are some truly gorgeous things to uncover… it’s actually kind of nice to have a little browse and not feel overwhelmed by pages and pages of product – well worth a look!
