It's the kind of lifestyle that most people dream of. The Wilde Bella. Free spirited and bohemian with vintage flair and a splash of sass.
For Megan Dahl, it's also the lifestyle which lead to the inception of her creative and unique clothing label.
Born in the regional Queensland town of Bundaberg and raised at its beach side neighbour Bargara, from an early age Megan was inspired by local imagery and wearable gypsy retro art. As the daughter of a fashion designer, it wasn't long before she knew her way around a sewing machine with at least one room of the house always covered in flowing colourful fabrics, threads and textiles. From these beginnings and a strong Dutch heritage came her first label, Boho Baby. The result of many hours trawling through local vintage stores and Op Shops for glorious old crocheted and embroidered fabrics which she fashioned into beautiful one-off pieces. At the local markets these stand alone maxi dresses and reinvented vintage garments proved extremely popular and encouraged Megan to expand her vision and business further.
The Wild Bella is a natural progression from Boho Baby to a full range of gorgeous pieces, now available to the online community. The label encompasses Megan's love of everything coastal, bohemian and antique with a slight edge.
A selection of her one-off Boho Baby designs are also available to purchase to the lucky few when available (follow @thewildebella on Instagram for updates).
Megan now currently reside in Northern New South Wales. When not pouring her heart and soul into the production and creative development of The Wild Bella, she is a proud single mum of 2 young, spirited boys.
