Gorgeous New Kids Fashion And Lifestyle Brands At Dot To Dot

I visited a new trade show for kids fashion and lifestyle called Dot to Dot this week. Small and intimate, the exhibitors were a mixture of established and up and coming labels. I loved having a peek at so much talent and creativity, and all the brands involved are based in the UK, too. It was good to see favourites like Tootsa Macginty, Aravore, Poco Nido, Braveling, Boys & Girls and Red Urchin, plus  some exciting new finds.

I was bowled over by pretty much everything I saw, these are my picks to pass on:

Urban Merino: Funky kids clothes in beautifully soft merino wool that’s a dream to wear, and more importantly, machine washable… See Urban-merino.com

Holly Hastie: A stunning new label by the ex Jigsaw designer due to launch in the autumn. The clothes are influenced by Edwardian seaside photography and twenties flappers. Hollyhastie.com

The Little Shoemaker: Each pair of these exquisite shoes is handmade by the label’s creator. Super soft leather in neon and sweetie wrapper shades make them stand apart from everyday children’s shoes. Stocked at Fortnum & Mason and also here

Camomile London: A mother and daughter team with design pedigree from Hobbs, Toast and Max Mara. Their beautifully understated bedding and homeware is launching in April. See their website for more details.

re-be: Made from salvaged discarded garments, vintage fabrics and factory off cuts re-be truly is up-cycling taken to another level. I love the girls ponchos made from supersoft cashmere. Find their website here
