Gail Russell Taos Photo Artist and Designer has done it again! She recently released a new fashion line, SallyGators®, Legwarmers for fashion and adventure. SallyGators® are Southwest style wear, inspired by Native American women’s leggings. Russell’s new leg warmer line is making a splash in the fashion community due to the functionality and original nature of the design. There’s nothing else like it out there. SallyGators are made entirely in the USA! They are a wonderful asset as well as fashion accent to any cold weather or outdoor adventure- great for horseback riding, hiking, walking, dancing, aero-arts, yoga, or going out on the town. Russell recently debuted SallyGators and their Matching Fleece Kangaroo Scarves at the renowned Oasis Gift Trade Show in Phoenix Arizona.
Russell and her late business partner Barbara Whitestone created the company Kangaroo Girls in 2008, releasing an inventive scarf line
Kangaroo Scarves, fun, high-end scarves with pockets. After Barbara passed, Russell resurrected the Kangaroo Girls Company with her new creation SallyGators. SallyGators are available in 5 different materials and a plethora of designs: Printed Fleece, Printed Cotton, Cotton Canvas, Denim, and Velvet. The Fleece gators are delicious for warmth and style during the colder months and have matching Kangaroo Scarves with Pockets. The Denim and Cotton Canvas styles are great for riding and other rugged outdoor applications and also great for tick protection. The cotton line is lightweight with fun designs great for hiking, walking, dancing, tick protection, and casual wear. The new velvet line will grace any situation with class and elegance. They are lined with quilted cotton for comfort and have metal, bone, shell or coconut button accents. At the bottom of the garment is a stirrup to keep the warmer comfortably in place.
Gail having a deep respect for Native American life and culture holds her connection to her Native family dear to her heart. A percentage of all earnings from SallyGators go towards the Adopt-a-Native-Elder program of Park City, Utah and The Farmhouse School Lunch Program of Taos, NM. Crucita Mondragon of Taos Pueblo sewed all of the SallyGators prototypes.
