IMPORTANT GUN SHY NEWS
Dear Esteemed Gun Shy Supporters,
Thank you for visiting my website. Before you dive into the world of faux fur, I have some important news about Gun Shy.
During Melbourne's fourth lockdown, I made a spontaneous decision while sipping coffee—to pursue a Masters of Secondary Teaching to make productive use of my time. Fast forward two and a half years, and I've successfully completed my Masters, finding a passion for teaching.
However, this career transition has led me to make a tough decision. I'm closing Gun Shy with a heavy heart.
But don't fret! I still have a substantial inventory of faux fur materials and will continue crafting jackets, though I won't accept new orders. My focus is fulfilling outstanding orders first, followed by offering pieces for sale via email and social media.
If you're interested in purchasing remaining Gun Shy items, check out the SALE section on my website for immediate sample pieces and upcoming additions.
Your unwavering support has meant the world to me. Thank you for joining me on this fabulous faux fur journey for nearly a decade!

"More than the coat itself ( which is completely and totally dead gorgeous) Gun Shy design is a culture, a cloak to escape from the mundane and everyday! I feel like an artist, a libertine, a femme fatale, smouldering film actress, enfant terrible wearing it. I loan it to fellow artists to feel its magic ( Dallas frasca) she wore it for a Bowie concert! I photograph myself in it incessantly because I feel more than me in it! And sometimes that’s essential just in order to exist!!"
