Landmark transition to Aboriginal Ownership for fashion label Magpie Goose
Magpie Goose has always been a brand determined to do things differently, and is now the first non-Indigenous company to transition to Indigenous ownership.
Co-founders of Australian label Magpie Goose Laura Egan and Maggie McGowan are proud to announce Brisbane-based Amanda Hayman and Troy Casey as the new Owner-Directors of this culturally rich brand.
“Magpie Goose is a socially conscious brand that we believe in,” say Amanda and Troy, who have long been stockists of the brand at their collaborative retail store Open House in West End, Brisbane.
“It provides Aboriginal artists with ongoing economic opportunities, and connects the broader community with our people, our culture, and our stories.
“We commend Maggie and Laura for having the courage to be the first non-Indigenous company to transition to Indigenous ownership. This is a momentous occasion, a timely and important step for industry to affirm the capabilities of black businesses, particularly those that involve Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP).”
