Gypsy Soule® Teams with Rodeo’s “It” Girl, Fallon Taylor

Gypsy Soule® Teams with Rodeo’s “It” Girl, Fallon Taylor
The new Fallon Taylor Line boasts the splashiest styles of jeans, purses and jewelry, inside or outside the arena.

WEATHERFORD, TX—Gypsy Soule® reined in 2015 World Champion Barrel Racer Fallon Taylor as the face of their new women’s line of splatter paint jeans, handbags and jewels. Taylor is best known as the fearless, dark-eyed beauty who has qualified six times for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in barrel racing, first competing in the World Championships at age 13—she was one of the youngest qualifiers ever. She’s also known for her careers as a model and actress as well as for her neon sense of style.

“Gypsy Soule’s style is parallel to my style,” says Taylor. “We joined forces on this new line because the women behind Gypsy Soule® have an amazing fashion sense—it’s rebellious. I like to fly my freak flag, I love neon, and this line is sort of like a cowgirl runway. I’m proud to add my name to Gypsy Soule® because I think the company stands for empowering women and it’s run by two strong women. I love their #hashtag, ‘Women who live by their own rules.’ I am proud to represent them and I appreciate everything they stand for.”

Rodeo fans can attest to Taylor’s wild, unforgettable clothing—she’s remembered for streaking across rodeo arenas in bright, tie-dyed, fringed clothing and equally colorful cowgirl hats. She and Gypsy Soule® are “bringing the bright” with splashy jeans, purses and jewelry. Taylor says everything in the new Gypsy Soule® line-up is perfect for inside the arena and out on the town.

“‪We are excited about the Fallon Taylor line and our collaborative efforts because she embodies ‘the woman of confidence’ Gypsy Soule® products have come to represent,” says Gypsy Soule® President, Lorinda Van Newkirk. “We want to continue to communicate that the Gypsy Soule® brand encourages and inspires women to freely express their unique sense of style, and Fallon’s flashy style and dynamic personality are a perfect fit for us.”‬‬‬‬

ABOUT GYPSY SOULE®: The Gypsy Soule® fashion brand empowers a woman with confidence. Dressed in shoes, clothing and accessories that communicate her unique sense of style, the Gypsy Soule® woman radiates originality, fulfillment and freedom—her genuine “gypsy spirit” literally sparkles, inside and out!

‪Founded in 2003, the brand is mostly known for Gypsy Soule® footwear—the most fashionable, flashy, flip-flop collection the world has ever seen! Today the brand also offers a variety of products including handbags, jewelry and a line of well-made, good-fitting jeans.

The Giveaway

We don’t do it to make ourselves feel better, but dang it, it does make us feel great!

In March, Gypsy Soule donated about 2,300 pair of shoes—flip-flops, flats, boots—to a Fort Worth church, Met Church. We’ve worked with the church before, in 2012, when we donated several hundred pair of shoes for a mission trip to Uganda, in East Africa.

Well, we don’t do anything small at Gypsy Soule, and neither Amy nor I have ever been accused of being timid! We decided to blow up our donation and we’ve been thrilled at the response from the recipients. We worked with a couple, Liz and Duane Griffith, who are members of Met Church and are involved with the church’s missions. Duane told me all about the places our shoes were donated.

There was Presbyterian Night Shelter, where more than 500 men and women are housed on a daily basis. Duane said the shelter coordinator for donations, Harriet Willis, met him at the shelter and was overwhelmed by the number of shoes we had for them. The shelter is even going to save some of the boots and shoes until next Christmas, when they’ll be given as special gifts to the women who live at the shelter with their young children.

That chokes me up…seriously, it does.

The other donation location was Beautiful Feet ministries, which has been serving the poor and homeless in Fort Worth for more than 30 years! They provide so many options for the people who live there: worship services, a daily soup kitchen serving two meals a day, daily Bible studies, free medical, dental and vision care and a clothing closet. The clothing closet provides clothing and supplies to between 150-200 people monthly. Mission teams from across the United States come to serve alongside Beautiful Feet Ministry staff, and the day our shoes were delivered, there was a mission team from Alabama just finishing up their mission trip.

IMG_1456IMG_1466 Amy and I were thrilled to hear about how excited the staff and volunteers were about the shoes. They all immediately began planning how to distribute them to those they serve.

The other part of our donation effects women on the other side of the globe, and it makes me so proud to be a part of this amazing mission in a little place called Jinja in Uganda, in East Africa. We first donated shoes to Met Church in 2012 for this particular mission, and I’m so gratified that another 300 pair of shoes will be going there again!

Liz and Duane Griffith let me know that Met Church’s mission team will visit Jinja this summer. The donated shoes will be given to women who work as part of a support group/co-op of women who are either HIV positive or who have AIDS. Because of their medical conditions, the women in this group have been abandoned by their families.

By working together making crafts, jewelry and other items that are sold to visiting mission teams, the women provide a support system for one another. The only income these women make is from the sale of these hand-made items.

The beaming faces of these women—a picture really is worth a thousand words! I think this photo eloquently say more than I ever could.

We are humbled to be part of such worthy causes, and we want to thank our patrons for making this type of generosity possible!
