Hey gorgeous! I'm Ange
I'm the founder and CEO here at Country Allure and a self obsessed cowhide addict. I'm a crazy horse and dog lady who thrives off strong coffee and chocolate. C.A started as a side hustle on my lounge room floor in early 2017 and from the beginning it has been a complete whirlwind!
There's been the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. I've been told I'm crazy more times that I'd like to admit BUT, I wouldn't change it for the world! It has given me a level of independence I never dreamed imaginable.
I have met some of the most amazing human beings through my business journey and continue to. I've built the most incredible team, full of intelligent, bold and courageous women. All of which share the same values as me and Country Allure.
From a young age, I have always had a creative streak. From putting together outfits for 'fashion shows' at the age of 5 to painting massive murals at the age of 17. I loved nothing more than exploring how different colours worked together and experimenting with different mediums.
From leaving school I spent 9 years between agriculture and mining. It's safe to say neither of those jobs required my creativity. I loved my time in those industries but they didn't give me the satisfaction I craved.
When I started designing bags and accessories, it set my soul on fire. I couldn't find what I was looking for on the market so I made it. From that came a massive rush of passion and I fell in love with creating again. I realised very quickly that society had pushed me into believing that I couldn't make a career out of my creativity. But that was so wrong.
I want to inspire women to live up to their potential and walk to the beat of their own heart. I want reality to become far bigger than any dreams, not just for me but for everyone out there.
If you had of asked me 10 years ago if this is where I'd be, I would have laughed. Now I laugh knowing the positive impact I get to have on so many lives on the daily. Having the ability to positively impact communities and things I care about leaves me needing to pinch myself often.
Dreams can come true.
