We can’t believe this blog is our first of the year and we’re almost through January already! This Christmas was absolutely crazy at Kidult and Co, so thank you for your orders and a belated, very happy new year to you all! We hope the little ones were happy with their goodies, and that you have your card ready for the fab stuff we have coming up in 2018.
We’re kicking our year off with a bang and are straight off to a children’s exhibition in London to peddle our wares and show that the North is home to cool kids clothing brands. So please spare a thought for us this weekend whilst we’re busy picking out stock, and loading up a van, all ready for Bubble London on Sunday!
We’re Going Down South!
Gotcha! No, we aren’t moving; we’d miss our lovely little office here in Rossendale too much! We’re just visiting London for a couple of days, attending one of the most exciting trade shows of the year…
Bubble London is a premium children’s trade show, attended by buyers, members of the press and big names in the kids clothing industry. Held at the Business Design Centre, Islington, the event plays host to a unique, edited line-up of kid’s fashion, accessories, gifts and homeware brands.
It sounds right up our street, and we’re super excited to get our unisex kids clothing line out there in front of department store buyers, leading children’s retailers and buying groups. People will travel from across the country and overseas to see the diverse line-up of businesses.
Held in hip and vibrant Islington, the bi-annual event boasts an amazing brand line-up, which now includes us! We’ll be joining the some of the biggest names in childrenswear, and rubbing shoulders with other up-and-coming independent labels like our own. Can you tell we’re excited yet?
Besides showing off our own brand, we’re looking forward to seeing what else is happening in the industry, what’s hot, and keep an eye on the competition!
A highlight at Bubble will be the catwalk shows; it’ll be interesting to see how other kid’s clothing brands present boys and girls clothing. It would be ace if they had a unisex catwalk show, which featured clothing made for lifestyle and personality rather than gender!
Other key features at the event will include lively panel discussions (which we’re always up for!), a programme of seminars, new collaborations, launches and exclusives and presentations for the finalist and winners of CWB Independent Retail Awards 2017.
Phew! We’ll be tired after all that, but are positive it will be 100% worth it. We want to bring our lovely little brand, which we’re so proud of, to a wider audience.
Are You Visiting Bubble London?
If you’re attending Bubble, don’t forget to come and say hi to us. We’ll have a large selection of our unisex kid’s clothing on display, including our mega-popular signature collection. We want you to love our boundary blurring, statement clothing, as much as we do! Our fresh and fashionable monochrome line is perfect for ALL kids, regardless of their gender.
The Homegrown area showcases brands and collections which have the same manufacturing principles as ours; good quality clothing which is designed and made exclusively in the UK. Yay for British brands!
