London Fashion Week is over. From our frow seat at Mini Mode last week we can attest that a lot of brightly coloured tulle will be coming to the high street!
Mini Mode is a fashion show of children's designers held annually in Marylebone. To see umpteen brave-faced (shy and brassy) kids strut their stuff made the entire audience grin from ear to ear. Karl Lagerfield (RIP) showed, among a plethora of designers including Isossy, below. What a wonderful event it was!
Ultra soft organic cotton range of clothes made by ethical, environmentally-friendly and fair trade production teams in Europe. (Oh and free from toxic chemicals!). See what one mum says on the app.
A premium styling online service for kids. Input a few details about your brood's likes and dislikes and wait for a box of mix and match clothes to arrive; you pay for what you want to keep. A definite help for busy parents. "Fabulous brands and very kind customer service - we were impressed!" says a mum.
Artists, authors, pilots, nurses... Among all the featured heroines is the iconic Parisian designer, Coco Chanel (1883-1971), famous for her timeless designs, trademark suits and little black dresses, before Karl Lagerfield took over. "Information is accessible and appealing to young readers" says this parent, who thinks both boys and girls will love it.
Another must-have sweatshirt by H&M where profits go to a great cause, the WWF. The "I Love Earth' sweatshirt recommended by a mum of 2 on Kinfo app also sits besides this pale pink tiger design.
Mini fashionistas can develop their creative flair by styling child-sized mannequins, expressing their tastes through clothes and accessories. The kid-sized city also offers an ethical recycling fashion class. Read the full and funny review of one parent's visit on Kinfo app.
