About HippyHappyBazaar

Sales 3
On Etsy since 2016

It all started as a child, I was always fascinated with, colour, textures and fabrics. I used to love and watch how my mother would draper her beautiful saris and dupattas (scarves) across her body and how she always asked me to help her with placing the pleats in her sari.

On my many trips to India with my family and many times on my own, I absolutely adored exploring and experiencing the colourful markets and vivid vibrant displays at the local Bazaar. Every time on my return back to UK I would dream of going back to India and dreamt about creating my own brand one day.

The Hippy Happy style is all about boheme, femininity, colour, textures and handcraft. I wanted to create pieces which I wanted to wear and could never find anywhere pieces which made you feel like a beautiful woman. The collections consist of colourful prints, embroidery, embellishments and personal customising making every piece unique and precious.

Hippy Happy by Anju Rani has become a journey of imagination one that never has any limits. My work is a huge part of who I am my expression of personality and has become a colourful endless journey as it's about my lifestyle and how I choose to live .

I'm a lover of all things colourful, vivid and vibrant that makes you dream and simply makes one smile .

The idea of working with fabrics was forever in my head as far back as I can remember but only started developing the Hippy Happy brand about 7 years ago when I decided to go and live in France with my partner Francois.

Coming from an Indian background and culture being an Indian female I had so much self doubt about my dreams and ambitions to do what I had extreme passion for. Careers such as fashion, music, drama, artist, etc were extremely frowned upon and was not seen as a "proper" profession in an Indian family so I decided to do Philosophy and TESOL at university which according to many was the right thing to do.

Only until I met my partner Francois in 2006 by accident (another story all together) who came into my life the perfect time. He saw a few samples of my work which I was hiding away from the world and he told me that my work was amazing something I have never heard before about my work. He was the only one who encouraged me to finally live MY DREAM. I was like a bird in a cage and he finally opened the door to my cage and set me free. Now I feel I can fly as high as possible without any limits.

He also encouraged me to finish my studies before I pursued anything, which was sensible advice. Since meeting Francois and moving to France nearly 7 years ago the reality of Hippy Happy began to surface and now has become a recognised name amongst our regular clients mainly for its uniqueness.
