giddyupgirl & giddyup Australia designs on-trend, practical and affordable garments to make you feel and look your best in and outside of the arena. Designed by Australians for Australians
Why are there two different names, giddyup and giddyupgirl? Well we wanted to show that ladies clothing is going to be very different to girls clothing. So we branded the girls gear as giddyupgirl and the ladies gear for girls over 16 as giddyup. Both labels are totally dedicated to providing girls who love horses, real fashion alternatives to traditional and conservative equestrian wear.
We create things like girls and ladies jodhpurs, ladies breeches, girls show shirts, girls show jackets, ladies show jackets, casual jackets, riding shirts, riding vests, polo shirts, hats and lots of other gear too.
giddyupgirl is the inspiration of mother of three, Tammy, who has a long history with fashion design and modeling.
While watching her (then) 13-year old horse-crazy daughter 14 years ago at Horse Training Camp, Tammy realised there wasn't an edgy fashion label dedicated to young girls and teens with a passion for horses - most girls were wearing surf and street brands! After the class, Tammy chatted to the horse-loving girls about the idea of a funky fashion label especially for them. Receiving a passionate reaction to the concept, Tammy started researching her idea that very afternoon.
With over 15 years as an international model (including being TV Hostess on the game show Say G'Day with Greg Evans) and working in the fashion wholesale and retail markets including Esprit and Lisa Ho, Tammy quickly developed her launch range of premium products and hit the market in May 2004. Initially distributed via the www.giddyupgirl.com.au web site and a small selection of stores, many of giddyupgirl product lines were sold out in weeks. Tammy realized she had a winning idea.
The label is different as it has real horsey integrity without compromising fashion, fun and comfort. Is that the sort of thing you identify with too?
