Here are some more of the Bubble London kids fashion trade fair highlights. There were quite a few swimwear exhibitors and Rachel Riley has produced quite an extensive swim and beach range this year and is planning to take it to the Miami Swim show which is a new departure for her and sounds an interesting move.
Also it was good to see the return of Agatha Ruiz de le Prada’s kids clothing collection as the vibrant colours of the range fit right in with current trends. The nail stand of Little Bu was busy with little girls having a treat with their peel off special nail varnish and the quirky kids magazine Anorak had a busy space too.
I loved seeing a buyer making her selections at I Love Gorgeous, its interesting to see how a retailer selects from the collection for a store and so different to selecting for editorial shoots also it was good to meet new exhibitor Catherine from Poco Nido who has many years experience in the shoe industry and see the delightful prints she designs for her baby shoe and T-shirt range.
Also new this season was the Bubble London rising star award and as you can see below there are a crop of new names to look forward to for the future including the interesting Michiko and Me.
All brand contacts can be found on the Bubble London website.
