Well, what an exciting weekend we’ve had! Even if you flew to the moon and back this weekend, we’ll bet you any money you weren’t as ridiculously over-excited as we’ve been?! And we’ll tell you why…
Kids Fashion Runway
For those of you who missed our news a few weeks ago – as detailed in the previous Kids Fashion Runway blog – this weekend, the 12th February 2017, was the (you’ve guessed it) Kids Fashion Runway event, held at the Richmix in London as part of London Fashion Week.
And what an event it was! Attended by over 18 other up-and-coming kid’s fashion designers, the show was a whirlwind tour around what’s coming up in the world of children’s fashion, both from the UK and around the world. There really were some awesome kids wear designers there on the day and it was so energising to see so much talent coming up through the ranks. All the clothing looked absolutely amazing, and if that tiny sample was anything to go by, you can rest easy that your kids will be looking super cool for the next few years at least.
In particular, we had a such an utter blast meeting all the other brands and their representatives who were there on the day, especially our hosts, Baby Bandits, to whom we owe a massive debt of gratitude. Thanks so much guys for putting on such an amazing show; it really was fabulous and an experience we’ll never forget.
Thanks To Our Sponsors
Additionally, we’d like to send out a huge extra special thank you to our sponsors for the day, Young Soles, without whom none of it would have been possible. This awesome kid’s shoes brand from London really is one to watch out for, because their range of shoes are both fresh, stylish and practical.
In their own words, Young Soles are;
“a luxury children’s footwear brand with a small collection of lightweight shoes for both boys and girls from toddler to junior. Blending retro-cool with classic British heritage styles, our shoes are designed in East London and made in Europe using the highest quality materials.”
If you haven’t checked these guys out yet then we really recommend you do, because they truly are fearsome; their designs are sophisticated yet bang on-trend and their ethos is inspirational. Young Soles truly are a brand to keep your eye on in the world of childrenswear. We certainly will be, and we’ll be telling you more about them in one of upcoming blogs too.
Front Page News
Of course, the three of us already knew that this weekend was going to be amazing, because the week started off in such a surprising way, thanks to us making the front page of our local paper! Yep, you know you’ve made it when you’re headline news, even if it is only the Rossendale Free Press!
Obviously, we had messaged the paper’s newsdesk to tell them about our upcoming London Fashion Week event, but we were never entirely sure that they were going to get back to us at all. That’s why we were chuffed to bits when they rang us back and confirmed they would feature us, and even more gobsmacked when they told us we’d be on the front page.
To be perfectly honest, it was slightly strange to see our three faces peeping out at us from the front page on the morning of Thursday 9th February 2017, but in a good way. You can read the full article here, and please feel free to share it on social media or with your friends and family too!! Naturally we shared it everywhere. Well, it’s not every day you make the front page, is it?!
Unexpectedly, the best bit of the whole article was the fact that it was quickly followed up by phone calls from other news agencies, who also wanted to feature us in their publications. So watch this space, because you’ll hopefully be hearing about even more articles soon.
New Products To Boot
BUT – that’s not even all our news yet, because to coincide with the Kids Fashion Runway event, we also made this weekend the launch of our latest product range. Yeah, we didn’t feel we had enough to do!
Our SS17 Playtime Collection is so super-duper that even we’re impressed with ourselves, and the response from you lot – our loyal customers – has been absolutely phenomenal! In fact, we can’t quite believe how well our latest designs have gone down, both at the Kids Fashion Runway and through our online store too.
The ethos behind this latest collection was a desire to bring the world of the playground into the world of fashion and just have a bit of fun. That’s why our latest range of authentic, original Kidult and Co designs feature slogans and images such this one, the Sticks and Stones white writing on a black t-shirt option;
Or the #Tag You’re It tee, available in a choice of colour options and a range of kid’s and adult’s sizes;
Or this one, the already phenomenally popular Kiss Chase (Eww) black on white t-shirt, popular with both children and their parents alike;
Alternatively, why not show your allegiance to the Kidult and Co ‘Cool Kids Club’ with our new emblem design, which can be stamped on your t-shirt, your hat or even your babygrow, depending on which you prefer!
And the best bit is that we’ll welcome anyone into our Cool Kids Club, no matter how cool you think you are yourself, so you don’t need to worry about feeling left out with us.
