Welcome to the sassy world of Groovy Gal! 💓

Founded by myself Colette Olumide ,a one woman band whipping up funky delights from my attic in Hebden Bridge ! A cute and creative little town in a West Yorkshire valley . 

My pash for fash probably started from the minute I was born (lol), but I didn't discover my own sense of individual style until I became a teenager. I studied  Graphic design and photography at college and then later I enrolled into Fashion marketing at Man met university however only lasted 2 years - too many nights out 🙄🙄 Who can relate ? Lol . 

I didn't buy my first sewing machine until a year later , I had minimal sewing experience, but a shed tonne of ideas , festivals I needed clothes for and good old youtube . The sassy mesh wrap tops you see on my site today  started as a top I made myself for a local festival and it was pretty lush so I started a Depop page and fortunately for me people actually liked my stuff- so here we are a few years later and it turns out you gals still like my designs- thanks! 

I think my  first festival experience  in my teens  was probably what  set me off on this creative, weird and colourful journey of making clothes. At a festival you can be your ultimate, brightest, funkiest version of yourself . Preparing fezzy outfits is mega exciting and sometimes I struggled to find clothes that expressed my style at a festival.

Groovy Gal is all about providing handmade to order clothes that are unique, individual and unapologetically creative. As a rather curvy , mixed race lady  , I also want my brand to include and reach a diverse audience that celebrates the uniqueness that every single one of us holds. May I add- this is not just aimed at women - whatever gender you associate with - I see you . This is very important to me , so am constantly finding ways to adapt and improve my small business  in a world were it is becoming increasingly more important to make ethical  and moral decisions . 

Conscious shopping has also become a positive move within the industry nowadays , meaning as a made to order slow fashion business I am able to run my business in the most environmentally friendly way I can in comparison to larger companies. This is something I am proud to be a part of and happy to see so many of these  small businesses popping up all over the globe ! 

There's nothing better for me than seeing my customers with enormous confidence and sass wearing my pieces,  so enjoy  your browse and thanks for taking the time to check me out ! 

Lots and lots of love ,
