Giveaway! Win an eco friendly designer top from Gypsy05

Browse main article categories

riley-tank-from-gypsy051Chickdowntown is an online women’s clothing retailer, promoting green and environmentally friendly designers.

Chickdowntown offer green clothing from many designers. The one I want to talk about today is Gypsy05.

Gypsy05 is an expression that stands to make a difference in the world.

“Good planets are hard to find” is the motto that began Gypsy05’s exploration to fight against environmental exploitation.

Environmental awareness

Through the art of fashion, Gypsy05 aims to communicate that the beauty of nature is a marvel.

Gypsy’s one of a kind designs incorporate organic fabrics, low impact dyes, and water based printing in every collection as part of our mission in environmental awareness.

The vibrant use of colors, airy fabrics, and simplistic silhouettes also truly express our nature inspired theme.

Inspired by natureriley-tank-back-view-from-gypsy05

Their story suggests the importance of smelling the roses rather than picking them; of getting inspired by the beauty of the vast ocean rather than polluting it.

The message is to Recycle, Reduce, Re-planet and feel naturally confident and free while living environmentally friendly.


We’ve teamed up with chickdowntown to offer you the chance to win a Gypsy05 Riley Tank (that’s a sleeveless vest to you and me!) which is perfect for the upcoming spring weather, and full of inspirational green messages.

I love this top – it comes in 100% cotton and the detailing on the racer back is sublime!
